I see. Bacterial conjunctivitis generally last 1-2 weeks and is usually self-limiting. The mainstay of treatment for bacterial conjunctivitis is topical antibiotic therapy, with the intent of significantly reducing the duration of symptoms and likelihood of contagion.

I would recommend stopping at Walgreens or similar place that has a pharmacist or minute clinic so you can get eye drops.
