Pink Eye (Conjunctivitis)

  • Never administer eye drops used to treat a previous illness unless directed by your doctor

When to get immediate attention

Whenever your child's eye becomes red, call the doctor to reassure yourself that simple conjunctivitis is the correct diagnosis

  • If your child is less than 2 months of age
  • If there is significant redness of the skin surrounding the eye
  • If your child also has fever
  • If your child is experiencing significant pain
  • If your child also has chicken pox or a cold sore
  • If there is a large amount of discharge coming from the eye
