Thinking Eye infection

Anybody have any home remedies for an eye infection??? Woke up with my left eye almost sealed shut, got it cleaned up but it hurts so damn bad... Plus now I'm pissy cuz I can't wear my contacts I have no insurance, so really hoping for some miracle cure!! Please!! Lol...

If it's pink eye (which it probably is PINK eye since it's you)... I think that's bacterial and you will need prescription drops to clear it up. Although some say it will go away on it's own in about a week. If just an eye infection, a cold compress will help. If it's pink eye, a warm compress is better, but keep it away from your other eye or it will spread.

I'm sitting in urgent care right now... I'm just getting no relief at all, and it actually hurts well, I get a little relief when I take ibuprofen, but I can def tell when it has worn of?

Yeah it sounds like conjunctivitis. Once you get the drops, you will feel SOOOO much better tomorrow.

Looks like abrasions on my cornea from my contact... No drops, but ointment... Which sucks! Lol...

Ok. Corneal abrasions hurt like SHIT! Is that what they said you have? Keep compresses on it, as well in between ointment. You will feel so much better in 24-48 hrs once the cornea heals itself. I had this not too long ago and it's a pain. Avoid your contacts and rubbing your eye for a while.

The good news is that the eye heals very fast. I hope you're feeling better.

Your not kidding... this really hurts!! Had to pull over on my way to school cuz my eye started watering, which hurt & made it water more, till I really couldn't even open my eyes... scary moment

Good news though, is not that I'm in class it's feeling much better
