Conjunctivitis

The swelling of the transparent membrane that covers the white part of the eyeball and the inner surfaces of the eyelids.

Infective conjunctivitis is caused by a virus or bacteria and is very common in children in a nursery environment.

Symptoms

The symptoms normally begin in one eye and after one to two days, the other eye often becomes affected too.

Symptoms may include red and watering eyes and a sticky coating on the eyelashes.

Lubricant eye drops can be purchased over-the-counter or they may be prescribed to help ease soreness and stickiness. You can also gently clean away sticky substances with cotton wool soaked in water.

Exclusion period

 Once medication has been prescribed and given for at least 24 hours.
