My husband has had pink eye for over a week now. He was given both antibiotic drops and antibiotic tablets, but they never went away. So, we're suspecting that it's viral conjunctivitis. His left eye, which is the most infectected-looking just keeps having watery discharge. Just tonight, I noticed a reddish spot on his pillow, and realized that it was blood. It looked like it was blood mixed with the watery discharge. He's not complaining of pain or blurry vision. Could this be something serious?
Thank you for the very quick response. What could cause the bloody discharge, then? I just hate seeing blood and I've been scouring for information about bloody eye discharge with pink eye but I could not find any information about it. It definitely doesn't look like a subconjunctival hemorrhage or something.
He woke up this morning and there was no bleeding anymore. Although he woke up at 3am and saw that the blood looked like it came from his left tear duct (not sure). He used Visine maximum redness relief before he went to bed. I was wondering if that had anything to do with the bleeding?
