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?
