    Pink eyes are caused by infection and inflammation, so keeping your eyes clean all the time is pretty vital. Physiological saline and solution can be helpful in this session. You need to use anti-inflammation artificial tears to cure pink eyes radically. Take some anti-inflammation pills if needed. Try to take more fruits and leafy foods, do not eat those food which can grow your internal thermal, such as beef and pepper.

    Swollen eyelid is a very common symptom of pink eye. There are three types of pink eye, refering to the inflammation of conjunctiva, bacterial, viral and allergic conjunctivitis. Different type of conjunctivitis requires different treatment. As to allergic conjunctivits, you should stay out of touch with the allergens. Allergic reaction comes and also goes fast, even no treatment required if it is not serious. Flushing your eyes with water to wash out the possible allergens in eyes, then it would be much better soon. Get fresh air purified and use a humidifier in your room. If your pink eye is caused by baterial or viral infection, then you could apply a warm saline water compress on eyes, which could effectively help the conjunctivitis. The warmth could help promote blood circulation so that the fluid collected around could flow and get absorbed. Meanwhile you can also apply some gentle massage there after your hands completely washed with mild soap. The massage could help the blood flow too. Get an extra pillow to elevate your head position so that the fluid would not collect around eyes.

    Pink eye is common and not severious, even you can be okay without any treatment option in 4-7 days. But it is still underlying eye disorders for further eye problems. During your condition, you'd better not drop any eye drops into eyes to help with swelling or apply any oils on skin that under eyes. Just place some cucumber slice on eyes to reduce swelling and eating some fresh fruits to take vitamin supllements.
