I caught conjunctivitis from my sister and so I am assuming it is viral although the pharmacist told my sister that hers had gone bacterial. I caught it and was in bed for over a week, wiped out, red swollen weeping eyes, cough and lack of appetite.
After a week I started taking antibiotics and am feeling quite a bit better. However although my eyes are not red and swollen any more, they are still quite sore and I notice that the TV is more blurred than before in my left eye. I am hoping this is just temporary and still the virus clearing up but am worrying because I read that infections can spread to the cornea. I don't know how long to give it to clear up. It started over a week ago. I have also used eye drops for the eyes but have stopped using those now as you could only use them for five days.
