Bacterial conjunctivitis is a common type of pink eye, caused by bacteria that infect the eye through various sources of contamination. The bacteria can be spread through contact with an infected individual, exposure to contaminated surfaces or through other means such as sinus or ear infections.
The most common types of bacteria that cause bacterial conjunctivitis include Staphylococcus aureus, Haemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pneumoniae and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Bacterial conjunctivitis usually produces a thick discharge or pus and can affect one or both eyes.
Standard treatment is with antibiotic eye drops or ointments and usually takes from one to two weeks, depending on the severity of the infection.
Viral conjunctivitis is another common type of pink eye that is highly contagious. Airborne viruses can be spread through sneezing and coughing. Viral conjunctivitis also can accompany common viral upper respiratory infections such as measles, the flu or the common cold.
Viral conjunctivitis usually produces a watery discharge. Typically the infection starts in one eye and quickly spreads to the other eye.
Unlike with bacterial infections, antibiotics will not work against viruses. No eye drops or ointments are effective against the common viruses that cause viral conjunctivitis.
If the inflammation is not reduced, the eyesight can be permanently damaged.
Pure Silver Concentrate reduces the inflammation, killing the bacteria and virus that cause conjunctivitis. If caught in time it can prevent the normal symptoms. Spray or put 1-2 drops of Pure Silver Concentrate directly into the eyes 4 or more times daily. Take 1-2 droppers of Pure Silver Concentrate 3x daily for one week or until the problem is remedied. This will usually remedy the problem within the first two to three days. ShopFreeMart products may also help with inflammation.
