Eye Infection

Eye infections can be a common and annoying problem. Infective conjunctivitis occurs when the eye is infected by bacteria or a virus and causes traditional symptoms like a gritty eye and waking up with eyes stuck together. The infection normally affects both eyes and is self-limiting with symptoms usually disappearing within 5 days.


  • Gritty eye feeling
  • Burning eye
  • Bloodshot and red eyes
  • Sticky mucus and pus that can stick to the eye lashes
  • Itchy and watery eyes


Infective conjunctivitis can be treated without any medicines by gently cleaning your lashes, and clear off the crust that has been left due to mucus produced from the eyes. You can also use a cold or hot flannel for a few moments on your eyes to help relieve the discomfort.

Medicine treatment for eye infection usually involves drops or an eye infection ointment. You can find eye infection cream like chloramphenicol eye ointment in brands Careway and Optrex. The eye infection ointment helps fight off your eye infection with its antibiotic function killing the bacteria to relieve your eye infection usually within 5 days. 


Whilst you have your eye infection ensure you wash your hands regularly with an antibacterial soap and water. Do not wear contact lenses as this can prolong the healing process, and also do not rub your eyes and this once again may cause re-infection and further discomfort.

Styes are an infection of an hair follicle in your eye lid. They usually can be treated with some warm compression that helps bring out the trapped mucus naturally, and promote healing of the stye infection. Some patients do look for chloramphenicol for stye and golden eye stye however these products are usually utilised for eye infections rather than styes. Chloramphenicol for stye is usually the chloramphenicol eye ointment that patients use to apply to the rims of the eyelid over the stye, however warm compressions regularly to the stye is the recommended treatment for styes.
