    If it is pink eye, you can use some home remedy first to relieve it. Place the warm compresses dipped with rose, lavender or chamomile oil over your eyes and apply it for 5-10 mins for 3-4 times a day. Hot compress relieves the discomfort as well as removes the infection from the eyes. If you have swelling, itching and redness, you can use ice pack. Just soak a clean cloth in cold water and remove excess water. Then, put the wet cloth on your eyes for several minutes and change the water when it gets warm.
