Conjunctivitis, also known as pinkeye, is an acute inflammation of the conjunctiva of the eye, which is a thin protective lining of the eyelids and eyeball. It is caused by bacterial or viral infection or an allergic sensitivity to an irritant.
The eye appears red and bloodshot, and there is often lots of watering and a clear or purulent (pus) discharge, depending on whether the infection is viral or bacterial. The eyelids are usually swollen, intense itching occurs with allergic conjunctivitis. The eye feels irritated and painful, and there is a burning sensation or a feeling that something is in the eye.
Conjunctivitis may become chronic or may damage the eye if left untreated.
If the main symptom is puffy swelling of the eyelids, give Apis.
For conjuncitivitis in newborns, think of Argentumnitricum.
When fever, redness, and throbbing pain are prominent, Belladonna is the medicine.
If the main symptom is excessive, irritating tears, give Euphrasia.
If the discharge is thick, creamy, and yellow green in a whiny, moody person, give Pulsatilla.
If burning in the eyes is prominent in a lazy, philosophical egoist, give Sulphur.
