It’s raining, keep your eyes safe – keep infections away if you follow these precautions!

During rainy season the risk of eye infection like conjunctivitis or pink eye is high. The humidity in the air is high during monsoon. Bacteria that cause conjunctivitis can spread quickly through moist air. Conjunctivitis is a minor infection in many cases but it affects the daily life a lot. Along with the medicines prescribed by the doctor, following some home remedies to treat eye twitching will give good results. Here are some such tips.

  • Personal hygiene

Wash your hands frequently with soapy water to prevent the spread of infection. Do not touch eyes with dirty hands. Bathing must be done every day.

  • Do not rub the eyes

Itchy or uncomfortable eyes are common in conjunctivitis. However, do not touch the eyes repeatedly. Also, repeatedly touching your eyes increases your risk of spreading the infection. It is better to use a clean cotton cloth or tissue paper to wipe the eyes.

  • Hot compression

To reduce the discomfort caused by eye irritation, treatment should be quick. Try giving a clean warm compress around the eyes to get results. This gives good relief. Hot compresses and artificial tears are needed for the eye throughout the day.

  • No make-up

Those who have a habit of eye make-up should refrain until the infection subsides. Make-up will make the medication ineffective.

  • Artificial Tears

Using artificial tears available in medical shops can help prevent discomfort. But the instructions on the pack must be followed.

  • Clean towels

It is good to change towels and sheets every day to avoid the accumulation of bacteria. Try to spend as much time alone as possible. Because this infection spreads very fast.

  • Don’t share things

As much as possible, personal items should be kept from being touched by others. The doctor’s advice should also be followed from time to time.

  • Eye drops

If the eye irritation is very severe, it is necessary to use antibiotic or anti-viral eye drops. These should be used strictly as per doctor’s advice.

  • Do not swim

It is better to avoid swimming as much as possible during rainy season. The risk of infection-causing bacteria and other factors is high in pool water.

  • Doctor’s advice is essential

Symptoms do not go away despite home remedies. If it goes away or becomes severe, it is necessary to consult a doctor and get proper medical help.

  • Swelling in the eyelids
  • Watery eyes
  • Discharge from the eyes means oozing
  • If these symptoms appear, it is necessary to take immediate care. Otherwise it will quickly spread to everyone.
