Homeopathy Medicine for Conjunctivitis

111

The symptoms of conjunctivitis, which can affect one or both eyes, include redness, discharge, burning, and occasionally itching and light sensitivity. Conjunctivitis is an inflammation of the conjunctiva, the mucous membrane that lines the eyelids and covers the white of the eyeball.

SYMPTOMS OF CONJUNCTIVITIS

The most typical signs of pink eye are as follows:

  • both or either eye may be red.
  • One or both eyes may itch.
  • one or both eyes feeling scratchy
  • One or both eyes may have a discharge during the day that crusts over at night, making it difficult for the eye(s) to open in the morning.
  • Tearing

CAUSES OF CONJUNCTIVITIS

Pink eye can be brought on by:

  • Viruses
  • Bacteria
  • Allergies
  • An eye splash from a chemical
  • An object from outside the eye
  • A clogged tear duct in infants

Viral and Bacterial Conjunctivitis

Adenovirus is typically the culprit in the majority of pink eye cases, but other viruses, such as the one that causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), herpes simplex virus, varicella-zoster virus, and others, can also be to blame.

Bacterial conjunctivitis can be brought on by wearing contact lenses that have not been properly cleaned or are not our own, and both viral and bacterial conjunctivitis can accompany colds or respiratory infection symptoms, such as a sore throat.

One or both eyes may be affected by either type, which is highly contagious and spread by direct or indirect contact with the fluid that an infected person’s eye drains.

Allergic Conjunctivitis

Our bodies produce an antibody called immunoglobulin E (IgE) in response to allergens, which causes special cells called mast cells in the mucous lining of our eyes and airways to release inflammatory substances, including histamine. Our bodies’ release of histamine can cause a number of allergy signs and symptoms, including red or pink eyes. Allergic conjunctivitis affects both eyes and is a reaction to an allergen-causing substance like pollen.

The majority of allergic conjunctivitis can be managed with allergy eyedrops, which can also help with sneezing and watery nasal discharge. Allergic conjunctivitis symptoms include intense eye itching, tearing, and inflammation, as well as sneezing and watery nasal discharge.

Conjunctivitis Resulting from Irritation

Conjunctivitis symptoms and signs, which may include watery eyes and a mucous discharge, typically go away on their own in about a day. Symptoms and signs, which may include redness and irritation, sometimes result from flushing and cleaning the eye to get rid of the chemical or object that was in it.

A chemical splash into the eye can result in permanent eye damage; persistent symptoms could also be a sign that a foreign body is still in the eye or that there is a scratch on the cornea or the covering of the eyeball (sclera), or that the chemical is a caustic one such as lye. If the initial flushing does not relieve the symptoms, or if the chemical is a caustic one such as lye, one should be seen by their doctor or eye specialist as soon as

RISK FACTORS

Pink eye risk factors are as follows:

  • exposure to a substance one is allergic to, resulting in allergic conjunctivitis
  • exposure to a conjunctivitis sufferer who is suffering from a bacterial or viral infection
  • wearing contact lenses, especially long-lasting ones

COMPLICATIONS OF CONJUNCTIVITIS

corneal inflammation that may impair vision

Eye pain,

the sensation of a foreign body being lodged in the eye,

Light sensitivity or blurred vision can lessen the likelihood of complications.

Transmition

Viral conjunctivitis can be transmitted from

Facial contact, or s

Sharing of cosmetics

can happen prior to, during, or following an upper respiratory infection or cold.

Allergic conjunctivitis

It is a non-contagious condition that typically affects people in the spring and summer and is brought on by allergies to plant pollen, which also causes redness and tearing.

Bacterial conjunctivitis

They also have other eye conditions like dry eyes or blepharitis, an inflammation of the eyelids, which can be transmitted as viral conjunctivitis.

Chlamydial conjunctivitis

Sexually transmitted, it frequently results in long-lasting (more than four weeks) symptoms.
