Hi! I'm thinking maybe my 4yr old might have pink eye. His eye is really swollen and pink only around his eye and eyelid. Not sure if its from him rubbing it or not. Do they need antibiotics or does home treatment work?
Pinkeye is usually a bacterial infection and requires ophthalmic (for the eye) antibiotic cream. I have no knowledge or experience with using breast milk or honey. Most, if not all, pediatricians will prescribe the antibiotic cream, which is topical and not systemic.
