This is probably totally off topic for this type of website but hey you never know someone might have an idea..........

So here goes,

my little girl keeps getting eye infections. She's had lots of antibiotics and they clear it up but then as soon as the course is finished, the infection comes back :grumbling

I keep bathing her eyes, use clean towels, cloths, keep her hands and glasses clean and still it comes back.

Anyone know of anything herbal that might help?

peace

Hi Curious Girl,

Too many antibiotics arent good for anyone, (weaken the immune system) especially for a childs developing immune system. Children arent usually aware of hygiene and touch anything, then put their fingers in their mouth, rub their eyes, thus getting infections.

The best thing you can do is bathe her eye in lukewarm salty water as often as necessary. And to make sure she washes her hands properly after having used the toilet, playing in the garden and touching pets etc.

Vitamin C also helps boost the immune system, making it easier for our bodies to fight infection.

Hope this helps.

Hi
sorry ive got no herbal remedy but lol ive had a few eye infections so hope any of this helps...allergic conjunctivitis <-- what ive had


what kinda eye infection? is any *matter* coming out? have you tried eye drops? eye infections are painful to soothe the pain keep wet cottons on her eyes for a while or cucumbers.

also does she watch a lot of tv? give her some *eye rest time* where keeps her eyes closed and if there is stuff coming out withcotton pads because the matter tends to come off on this.


also try doing an allergy test because eye infection can be caused through allergies. hay fever- thats a major cause...
and this one is hard but- dont let her scratch her eyes. especially if her hands arent washed.

umm hope that helps ill be back with more anddddddd hope your daughter gets better :loving:

^Good point about the pollen sis. Also when cotton wools pads are soaked properly this binds the strands together, preventing bits of fluff from falling off and going into the eye.

Like bacterial conjunctivitis, infection caused by allergens is not contagious. Until you have determined the cause of infection, it is best to use separate towels etc.

For herbal treament of conjuntivitis, please see link below:

Sorry, I really have no idea. I would have said just make sure her eyes stay clean - but yeah, I guess you've already been trying that.
Just remember that too many antibiotics aren't good. They get rid of the bacteria that's causing the harm, but the bacteria just returns with the ability to fight off the antibiotic the next time you admninister it.
Sorry that was all I could help you - and I guess some of the brothers and sisters already told you that info,
salam

Long time ago when I was a little child myself I had the same problem as your little girl. It turned out that my tear channels was much to narrow and a doctor widened them.

I do not know what age your girl are. A really good cure is using breath milk if the child is little and you still have any. It is antiseptic and is good to have both to eye infections and other problems with small children as "red skin" etc.

I was more thinking about using it in a different purpose then it was "meant for" not the procedure itself. :) But in another way it is still for a good purpose regarding the child.

I think I am just a bit afraid of giving advices that contradicts the religion it is not my intention. But when it comes to children it is hard to not try to help in anyway you know. :)
