    Apple cider vinegar is a kind of magic beverage. It is full of vitamin and tartaric acid, which can restrain tired, improve one's beauty, prevent colds, etc. For pink eyes, if you insist on drinking it, then it well help you in a certain degree, but it does not improve your situation directly. It acts as assistance. If you really want to get rid of pink eyes, you need to keep your eyes clean all the time. Leave no environment for bacterium to live. Physiological saline would be helpful. In a long run, drinking apple cider vinegar every day can enhance your immune system. You won't be that easy to get pink eyes.

    The answer is definitely yes. Apple cider vinegar is a good natural remedy for pink eye. The first method to use it is as follows: 1. Mix a teaspoon of vinegar with 4 teaspoons of cooled boiled water. 2. Dip a sterile cotton ball in the mixture and squeeze it out. 3. Close the affected eye and wipe with the cotton ball. Besides apple cider vinegar, there are several other natural remedies for conjunctivitis, such as lemon juice, baking soda, and salt water. To alleviate pink eye symptoms, you can also use way as follows: 1. Place two tablespoons of dried calendula or chamomile in a covered cup of hot water. 2. Cool the mixture. 3. Dip a piece of cotton into the mixture and then placed over the infected eye, allowing drops of the mixture to fall into the eyes. But how pink eye is treated depends upon what of pink eye one has contracted. So you'd better go to see your ophthalmologist for professional medical prescription if your pink eye is serious.
