Pink eye is often viral and needs to just run its course. However, it seems there are many different prescription options to treat pinkeye. A decision to be made by your doctor for sure.
For relief at home, it the eye is crusted shut in the morning, a warm damp washcloth will help soften the discharge and you can gently wipe away the exudate. Pink eye, viral or bacterial is always contagious, so your child need to be home until 24-48 hours into treatment or the symptoms subside. Make sure you and your child are washing your hands often to prevent the spread to the others in the house and friends at school.
