Pink eye is contagious and is very common in children who don’t maintain hygiene.
Practice hygiene and place wet towel on the eyes to soothe the irritation.
While pink eye is extremely common in children, it isn’t an only an indication of poor hygiene. Pink eye can be brought on by allergies, a viral infection, an irritating substance in the eye or bacteria that could have been picked up anywhere. There are a number of home remedies for conjunctivitis; honey/milk eye drops (equal parts luke warm milk (soothing) and honey (anti bacterial), warm compresses for soothing, chamomile tea bags on the eyes, sliced raw potatoes placed on the eyes for about 20 min(natural astringent), or 2 tblsp of tumeric powder to 1 cup of boiled water and use as a warm compress (which I have heard is the best, quickest remedy) Good luck!
