Recurring Conjunctivitis (pink eye)
I'm 33, haven't had pink eye since I was 7, that is, until this year. I've somehow contracted pink eye this year 4 times in 5 months. It's bacterial pink eye and the antibiotic eye drops clear it up quickly, but it comes back after I finish the bottle of drops. I woke up this morning with it again (the 4th time) and went back to the dr for more drops.
I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced it recurring like this? I wash my hands regularly, use Purel hand sanitizer, have even changed my pillowcases and towels daily and yet still I keep getting it again. Any suggestions on how to prevent it? This time is the worst so far, my right eye is so fuzzy it's hard to see and there's a continuous drainage. Dr doesn't know why I'm getting it like this and I'd really love to prevent it from happening a 5th time!
