Eye Flu Infection Causes

Conjunctivitis, commonly known as pink eye, is an infection of the conjunctiva (the outer-most layer of the eye that covers the Conjunctivitis ( pink eye )sclera). Eye flu or pink eye is caused by an infection which can be bacterial or viral. The viral type is often associated with an upper respiratory tract infection, cold, or sore throat. Bacterial conjunctivitis is often caused by bacteria such as staphylococcus and streptococcus. The severity of the infection depends on the type of bacteria involved.

Symptoms of viral conjunctivitis are watery discharge, Irritation, Red eye etc. Infection usually begins with one eye, but may spread easily to the fellow eye. Symptoms of bacterial conjunctivitis are Stringy discharge that may cause the lids to stick together, especially after sleeping, Redness of the conjunctiva, Redness, Watering, Irritation and/or a gritty feeling, Usually affects only one eye, but may spread easily to the fellow eye.

Bacterial conjunctivitis is usually treated with antibiotic eye drops or ointments that cover a broad range of bacteria. Like the common cold, there is no cure for viral conjunctivitis; however, the symptoms can be relieved with cool compresses and artificial tears (found in most pharmacies). For the worst cases, topical steroid drops may be prescribed to reduce the discomfort from inflammation. Viral conjunctivitis usually takes longer to resolve than bacterial conjunctivitis.To avoid spreading infection, take these simple steps. Disinfect surfaces such as doorknobs and counters with diluted bleach solution. Don’t swim (some bacteria can be spread in the water). Avoid touching the face. Wash hands frequently or use hand sanitizer. Don’t share towels or washcloths. Preferably use tissues than handkerchief to wipe eyes. Avoid shaking hands. Avoid going to work or public places till the infection is active.

I used to have pinkeye, which literally irritated me. I had blurred vision and little headaches. But my eye irritation was caused by halogen allergies. When it went on for a week, I started to seek help from optometrists. Indianapolis-based eye doctors prescribed some remedies. After a couple of days, the redness disappeared and my eyes are back to normal.

I experienced having so irritated eyes that it felt so itchy though my doctors said it wasn't sore eyes.
