If your baby develops pink eye, the symptoms are pretty noticeable. Since the eyelids and the membranes covering the eyes become inflamed, your baby is likely to be in a great deal of pain.

Luckily, there are many home remedies that you can help relieve your infant from the discomfort that they are feeling. For starters, you can place a tea bag in boiling water in order to wet it. After the tea bag has cooled, place it on the eyelids of your baby. This will help relieve pain and will soothe the eye.

Salt water is also a great option that you can add to the eyelids of a baby. For this method, boil water and add salt to it. After the solution has cooled, you can use a cotton ball to place the mixture on the eyelids of your baby. You can also complete this same process with chamomile tea.

Finally, breast milk is a fantastic option when you are treating pink eye in an infant. It has a great number of antibacterial properties and can be placed directly into the eye with a sterilized eye dropper in order to help heal pink eye.
