If you’re one of the many people in Calgary who have been searching for an over-the-counter solution for pink eye, you’ll be happy to know that Polysporin Eye & Ear Drops is now available at Chaparral Pharmacy.
Pink eye, or conjunctivitis, is a highly contagious infection of the eye that is often caused by a virus or bacteria. Sometimes the virus or bacteria can come from a simple thing such as rubbing your eye after touching your nasal discharge that contains that virus or bacteria.
The above case is a typical case for little kids and children who will get the flu, cold, or RSV, and start rubbing their nasal discharge with their hand, then touch their eyes, causing the inevitable!
For the pink eye condition, the most common symptoms include redness, itchiness, and watering of the eyes. In some cases, a thick, yellow or green discharge can also be present.
While pink eye is usually not serious, it can be very uncomfortable and sometimes even painful. If left untreated, it can also lead to more serious problems.
Polysporin Eye & Ear Drops are an effective way to treat pink eye and relieve its symptoms. The medication is a sterile antibiotic that:
- Eliminates bacteria causing the infection
- Speeds healing
- Provides fast-acting relief of symptoms
The drops are safe to use for both children and adults.
If you think you may have pink eye, it’s important to see a doctor or pharmacist as soon as possible. However, if you’re unable to get to a doctor right away, using over-the-counter Polysporin Eye & Ear Drops is a good way to treat the infection and relieve its symptoms.
