    Mine has been for almost a week, I use warm compresses, also my MD gave me atibiotic eye drops to use every 2 hours. I was prescribed keflex 3 times a day...before going to the MD I just used warm compresses. You might need to check in with your MD as this is caused by a bacteria which will not subside unless its treated. Hope this helps....Happy Hubbing!!

      You are right bacteria left untreated can be dangerous.  I am all for natural treatments but your eyes are a different matter.  You can't use garlic or vinegar or lemon juice.  You can't use hydrogen paroxide or alchol.

    Something that is very effective in relieving  the discomfort of conjunctivitis  is compresses soaked in regular tea.make tea like if you were going to drink it  let it cool off and soak compresses in it and place it on your eyes.

    A family member told me about soft lens contact lens drops for this and I highly recommend it after using it and use it for my aged cat all the time to keep her eyes nice. It apparently has something very soothing in it.

    Allergic conjuctivitis is caused when your eye comes in contact with things you are allergic to. It could be even dust.
    Thank you all for suggestions for home remedies.

    I'm sorry that you have this itchy irritaton and swelling! As much as possible keep your immune system in top condition and keep your hands washed when coming in from outdoors where the sources of allergens may be. Compresses with tea bags help greatly w. itching, pain, and inflammation. I would only use a mild saline wash in my eyes unless under the directives of a naturopath.  Benadryl is always a good antihistamine that helps w/ these allergic reactions.
    Good luck to you:)
