Conjunctivitis in children and its treatment, preschoolers

According to the law of meanness or because of unwashed hands, twice my daughter suffered from this disease. Fortunately, with timely and proper treatment, this infection passes quickly enough – within 3-5 days.

So, conjunctivitis – inflammation of the mucous membrane of the eye (conjunctiva), caused, most often, an allergic reaction or infection (viral or bacterial). And if in adults in almost 85% of cases the cause is viruses, in children bacterial and viral conjunctivitis occur with the same frequency.

If the cause is an allergy, then antihistamines will help to cure the disease. Usually, the eyes are watering, reddening and swelling during the flowering of trees and flowers or after contact with animals (usually cats).

Distinguishing viral conjunctivitis from bacterial can only be done by a doctor and the diagnosis is not always accurate. In accordance with the nature and course of the disease, appropriate treatment is prescribed.

One morning I noticed that my daughter’s eye was red and swollen slightly. It was the weekend, there was no need for an urgent appeal to the doctor, and I decided to wait until Monday.

For two days, every 2-3 hours I washed my daughters eyes with clean boiled water and buried Okomistin (a local antiseptic containing miramistin). Remember that after opening the bottle can not be stored longer than 25 days.

On the third day, we turned to an oculist, who approved my treatment and reported that, apparently, my daughter’s conjunctivitis is bacterial, because with a viral disease with such treatment, the symptoms usually disappear, the eye condition improves markedly. And her daughter’s eyes remained red and swollen, and in the morning there was even a slight suppuration in the inner corner.

The doctor prescribed a local antibacterial agent Floksal. And the next day there was a noticeable improvement, and two days later the doctor made an entry in the card Healthy.

Six months later, we were again overtaken by this disease. And again I noticed the first manifestations on Saturday morning. The appearance of the patient’s eye was similar to the first case, so I started the treatment with the same drugs – Optamine (the same Okomistin) and Floxal, burying them in turn, totaling 3 times a day each.

We were going to go to the doctor on Monday, however, there was practically nothing to go with – only minor redness remained.

Basic rules for treatment

Be sure to wash your hands before the procedure – instillation and rinsing eyes. For each eye, use a separate cotton pad. Do not drip anything into your eyes except sterile drops – no aloe juice, echinacea, and especially breast milk!

Another controversial aspect – many doctors recommend treating both eyes, despite the fact that there is only one symptom of the disease. Of the three doctors in whom I was interested and who do not cause me to distrust, three support this point of view.

In no case can not warm the eyes, put dry heat, bags of salt, egg and other devices! Especially if there is such a thing as barley in the eye.

Clean – the guarantee of health. Therefore, be sure to monitor the hygiene of the child. After the walk, you should wash not only your hands, but also your face. Stop the kid’s desire to touch the face, and especially the eyes, with your hands.

At the first signs of conjunctivitis, keep your cleanliness as thoroughly as possible – change the bed linen, rinse and bury your eyes regularly. Do not hesitate to contact a specialist and think carefully before testing another popular method on your own child.

I hope my experience and advice will be useful for you!
