Any Doctors around?

I think I have Pink Eye but I've been using my daughters leftover drops for 2 days and it's not getting better. Does this look like Pink Eye??

I'm not a doctor, but I play one on my ship. If that was my eye, I'd pluck it immediately. That thing looks gross!

Was it gooey? Is it itchy? How old is your daughters medicine? It takes about a week to get rid of pinkeye. BTW, your one ugly mother#@$%$@!

Here's how you tell...

Rub your right eye(red one) really good then go to the left and rub that one too. If it turns red in a few days...it's pink eye. Believe me, it will turn red.


Seriously, as much as I'd like to see a Redskin's fan suffer...DON'T DO WHAT I SAID!!!!!!!!

You definately have pink eye. You will get a script for floxin(I think) and put it in. You are highly contagious so watch where you put your hands and keep your hands washed. Over in a couple of days.

Well as a former paramedic with 23 years in the field I would have to say YEP YOU GOT IT!! Now haul ass to your DR and let him/her give you adult strength meds for it, your kids meds probably wont cut it.

I would suggest strongly you get yourself to a DR or emerg clinic right away and also break out the lysol and lysol everything you have touched in the house.

Everything right down to your toothbrush needs to be disinfected.

Good luck to you.

(Also don't share your towels or facecloth with anyone in the house keep them separate from everyone else)
