I have pink eye! For the first time ever.

It is awful! I just woke up and my eye is totally stuck together.

Any advice? I am using antibiotic eye drops. Can I clean it out with a wet washcloth?

    Pink eye is very contagious. Do not leave anything exposed to others after using washcloth. And wash your hands thoroughly.

    my doctor would prescibe the prescription drops over the phone.  See if you can do that.  It will clear it up really fast.

    I've been washing like crazy. I am very worried about giving it to my kids.

    Yep, it's awful. The goopy stuff is drying out, and forming a horrid crust.
