My friend , I hope I can help you. Pinkeye caused by a virus usually goes away on its own without any treatment. If a doctor suspects that the pinkeye has been caused by a bacterial infection, antibiotic eye drops or ointment will be prescribed. Sometimes it can be a challenge to get kids to tolerate eye drops several times a day. If you're having trouble, put the drops on the inner corner of your child's closed eye- when the child opens the eye, the medicine will flow into it. If you continye to have trouble with drops , ask the doctor about antibiotic ointment. It can be appplied in a thin layer where the eyelids meet, and will melt and enter the eye. If your child has allergic cinjunctivitis, your doctor may prescribe anti-allergy medication, which comes in the form of pills, lipuid, or eye drops. Cool or warm compresses and acetaminophen or ibuprofen may make a child with pinkeye feel more comfortable.You can clean the edges of the infected eye carefully with warm water and gauze or cotton balls. This can also remove the crusts of dried discharge that may cause the eyelids to stick together first thing in the morning. @_@
