Are you experiencing symptoms of conjunctivitis (pink eye), including redness, itchiness, a gritty sensation, tearing, and crusty discharge? Jovive Health—a 100% doctor-owned and -led practice—offers pink eye treatment for members of the Henderson, Nevada, community.
What Does Pink Eye Treatment Involve?
In many instances, pink eye can be effectively treated at home without the need for medical intervention. Some at-home remedies that may provide relief include:
- Cleaning the eyelid
- Gently placing a warm or cool compress on the eye
- Administering artificial tears
With that said, some cases of pink eye require professional treatment, so you should be sure to consult with a medical provider if your symptoms are especially severe, worsen over time, or don’t improve after you have attempted the remedies listed above.
Professional pink eye treatment varies depending on what caused the infection or inflammation. For example, if your pink eye resulted from a bacterial infection, a doctor would likely prescribe antibiotics. Or, if your symptoms were caused by allergies, a physician might recommend taking an antihistamine or an anti-inflammatory medication.
