This evening I realized that I have conjunctivitis. Normally I would just shrug and take care of it, but this is the second time in a few months. Last time I had it, I did the whole boric acid thing and that was fine. But is there something else that I can buy? Something that's less labor-intensive? The boric acid cocktails are tiresome.
Also, any suggestions as to why I would pick this up twice in just a few months? Once every three or four years is understandable. But twice in a few months?
I fear there are too many variables to accurately deduce why I have it this time. I spent several long days in a major hospital last week visiting a friend. I stay awake long hours and get little sleep, which takes a toll on my eyes. But in the last week, I've slept every night.
Does anyone know how long pink eye takes to present after it's been picked up? Is there a waiting period? Could I have picked it up at the hospital on Tuesday and it's just now presenting?
Any help and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
