Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
what gives you the impression you have an infection? is it one eye or both? is there pain? discharge? if so what color? how long has this been going on? do you wear contacts?
Did he prescribe any eye drop?
thanks for the information. The symptoms of redness, pain, tearing point towards an infection. The antibiotics will take a few days to give you relief, this is normal. A few important things to remember. You have a pink eye. It is in technical terms, a conjunctivitis. It is contagious. You can get it in the fellow eye. You need to wash your hands after you put the medicine in. You can apply cool compresses for comfort. You can also take motrin or tylenol over the counter for pain relief. Of course use the antibiotics as prescribed, typically they are used 4 times a day. I wish you well, Dr. Stevens
