Yup, I have pink eye. It started in one eye on Sunday morning and on Monday morning it was in the other eye as well. I went to the doc yesterday and was given the only safe antibiotic eye drop, but he said it could take 7 days to clear up. It seems like I keep getting sick during this pregnancy.
I just got over a horrible cold and pink eye. The dr gave me eye drops that were class C...I was not happy about that but I needed them badly. He told me to put pressure on my tear ducts when I put them in and hold it a couple mins after and it lessens the amount of drug that gets into my bloodstream. Hopefully yours clears up quickly!
The eye drops I got were class B which he said are proven safe. They are Tobramycin drops. He originally thought it only came in an ointment for the eye but once he checked his pregnancy book (this was my general doc) he saw they had drops and I was thrilled..
I've read that a safe alternative is breast milk, raw cow or goats milk, or a bit of the water that forms on top of real yogurt. Supposedly the probiotics and good bacteria kill off the bad. I don't like taking antibiotics so I may try one of those if I get pink eye again.
