charming_qteeWell, in my opinion, you get pink eye all the time and it can be related to the irritation in your eyes. And in most cases, pink eyes can be normal and annoying for many people, and when it occurs, your eyes will turn to red, bloodshot. And it can be caused by infection. For your situation, you can just try the chamomile tea, and just put cooled, chamomile tea bags on the eyes for 5 to 20 minutes. And that can be effective for your pink eyes in a long term. Also, for pink eyes, you need to wear eye patch to stay away from irritants, virus, and bacteria. Anyway, just be careful about it.03/11/2013
