I'm not a doctor, but I play one on TV--just kidding, but seriously, I am an ex-medical person, and I understand with the cost of all medical treatment these days, this is a valid question. OK, so Oftal-Mycin is used to treat irritation, and bacterial and fungus infections in the eye. Pink eye or conjunctivitis (which just means an inflammation of the white part of the eye) could be caused by something else, but Oftal-Mycin could help--at least to feel better. If it doesn't go away within a couple of days, with or without treatment, I would seek a physician's opinion, due to the idea, that eyesight is kind of important! Pink eye is considered highly contagious though, and so precautions like good hand-washing and not getting too close to others, is advised. Hope this info helps!
my humble request,please ask all this type of questions to your doctor. he is accountable for your medication.
