    It may usually take you for about a week to cure the bacterial keratitis. When the violation of pathogenic bacteria is more than the host defense function or host defense function damage, such as dry eyes, long-term use of corticosteroids and so on, it can cause the eye conjunctival inflammation and purulent seepage which should be suspected bacterial conjunctivitis. Usually the bacterial conjunctivities could be cured for about a week by using the eye drops with anti-inflammation role. You could also take care of something in your daily life. You should not eat the spicy food which may stimulate your skin. In addition, you should keep the good hygiene habit which is very important.

    Well, first, you should know that bacterial keratitis is a sight-threatening process. And according to some doctors, a particular feature of bacterial keratitis is its rapid progression, and also, corneal destruction may occur too. So you should take some measures to treat it. Generally antibacterial, antifungal, or antiviral therapy can be used to treat it. For example, prescription eye drops, pills, or even intravenous therapy. And then it may be healed in one week. At this period, you just need to avoid the bacteria and protect your eyes carefully.

    Well, so sorry to hear that you have got bacterial keratitis because sometimes it could be really serious. Because as you can see, during some serious situations, it could lead to some infections of other parts of your head. So, for the time being, you need to visit a doctor in the hospital for some antibiotics and eye drops, then try to keep your eyes clean and avoid using your eyes too much. Also, you should not rub your eyes which is dangerous, and maybe a healthier diet is needed, so do a lot of vitamins.
