How to Prevent Pink Eye [VIDEO]
Pink eye or conjunctivitis is, well, lets face it, disgusting! Here's some great ways to prevent pink eye.
Yesterday, I was made aware that my son's daycare has a confirmed case of pink eye, so the whole daycare is on a bacterial lock down and now I'm paranoid!
So I'm not a doctor and I don't play one on the radio BUT, wash your hands! There's more to it than that, but that's the basic principle.
Here, lets listen to what this good-looking doctor has to say:
According to Web MD, here's how you prevent pink eye:
Wash hands thoroughly and often, especially if you touch your eye or the area around it.
Keep hands away from the infected eye. Infection can also enter the body through the nose and mouth.
Do not share washcloths, towels, pillowcases, or handkerchiefs with others, including family members.
Change the above items after each use and wash them thoroughly.
Do not use other people's eye drops or cosmetics, particularly eyeliner pencils and mascara.
When in doubt, see a doctor.
Fingers crossed that my family does NOT get pink eye (or my coworkers for that matter).
