Conjunctivitis, commonly known as “pink eye,” is a common eye condition in children. It can be caused by viral or bacterial infections, allergies, or irritants. The hallmark symptom of conjunctivitis is redness and inflammation of the white part of the eye and inner eyelids. Other symptoms may include itching, tearing, and discharge.
Types of Conjunctivitis: There are three primary types of conjunctivitis: viral, bacterial, and allergic. Each type has distinct causes and treatments.
Prevention: Good hygiene practices, such as regular handwashing, can help prevent the spread of conjunctivitis, especially in schools and daycare settings.
Treatment: Treatment for conjunctivitis depends on the cause. Viral conjunctivitis usually resolves on its own, while bacterial conjunctivitis may require antibiotics. Allergic conjunctivitis can be managed with antihistamines and avoiding allergens.
Contagiousness: Viral and bacterial conjunctivitis are highly contagious. Children with these types of conjunctivitis should avoid school or daycare until they are no longer contagious.
Seek Medical Attention: If your child develops symptoms of conjunctivitis, it’s essential to consult a pediatrician for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.
At Om Children Hospital, we believe that well-informed parents make better decisions about their child’s health. To support patient awareness and education, we regularly publish articles and resources on topics like conjunctivitis and other common pediatric ailments.
