Help - pink eye.

Thursday, December 06, 2012

My little 3 year old grand daughter woke up with a puffy red eyes. The kind of eyes you see when you get a cold.

I drove 1/2 hour to get to bible study.

Spent 15 minutes there, and had to leave with my grand daughter they thought her puffy red eyes could be pink eye. Better safe than sorry.

Drove 1/2 to get back to the house.

Drove 1/2 to get to the doctor.

Waited an hour.

Spent 15 seconds with the doctor.

Drove back 1/2 hour to the pharmacy.

Doctor gave me the wrong prescription.

Waiting over two hours for the doctor to call in the right prescription.

My grand daughter still has pink eye and no prescription.

Even with that long 15 second session with the doctor, I forgot to ask how long little Penny would be contagious. Does anyone know?

    Sorry about all the time spent on the road without much success today! Hopefully things will get better quickly once she gets the right medicine!

    If it caused by bacteria, it's contagious as long as there is dicharge from the eyes or about 24 hours after antibiotics. Viral pink eye may be contagious as long as the symptoms are present( puffiness and rednes)
    You can help little Penny by putting tea compresses on her poor eyes. Make strong black tea, cool it until it's still warm , dip cotton puffs ( the ones used for removing make up) in it, wring them a little and put on closed eyes for couple of minutes.
