Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello, Welcome to Pearl.com
Are you available for chat now?
Is your daughter's left eye appearing red along with watering and discharge from the eye?
If it is indeed bacterial conjunctivitis ( redness, watering and discharge), then Polixin Ofteno drops would not be the ideal choice.
What is that good for?
I would prefer to use Moxifloxacin( Vigamox) eye drops, 1 drop 4-6 times a day for 7-10 days.
ok. I dont know if we have that here.
im in haiti.
It is one of the most widely used antibiotic eye drops all over the world . But it is a prescription medicines and would not be available over the counter.
ok. I will look for it or its local equivalent
You are most welcome.
so dont use Polixin until we get the new stuff. is that right?
We gave her 1 drop yesterday because wife thought that was the stuff she had last time.
Best wishes for your child and take care. Yes, if it is a case of bacterial conjunctivitis , Vigamox would be a better choice. But in children viral conjunctivitis is more common ( self limiting condition which would disappear irrespective of the treatment being given or not).
I found Gentacip eye drops. The pharmacy did not have Moxifloxacin. Can I use it? Administer the same way?
