Summaries for Conjunctivitis

PubMed Health : 62 About conjunctivitis: Conjunctivitis, also known as pink eye, is an inflammation of the conjunctiva. The conjunctiva is a protective membrane covering the white part of the eye and the inner side of the eyelid. When people have conjunctivitis, both of their eyes are often red because the infection can spread very easily from one eye to the other. Conjunctivitis is most commonly caused by bacteria or viruses, and sometimes by an allergy. Bacterial conjunctivitis usually gets better within a week without treatment, but viral infections can last as long as four weeks. Because the virus can easily spread through contact with your fingers, it is important not to touch an infected eye with your bare hands. If you do touch your eye, be sure to wash your hands right away. It is also a good idea to use your own towels and washcloths, and not share them with other people.

MalaCards based summary : Conjunctivitis, also known as madras eye, is related to giant papillary conjunctivitis and vernal conjunctivitis, and has symptoms including bloodshot eye, conjunctival congestion and redness of eye. An important gene associated with Conjunctivitis is NLRP3 (NLR Family Pyrin Domain Containing 3), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Innate Immune System and ERK Signaling. The drugs Pheniramine and Ketorolac have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include eye, testes and skin, and related phenotypes are hematopoietic system and immune system

Disease Ontology : 12 A conjunctival disease characterized by an inflammation of the conjunctiva, the outermost layer of the eye and the inner surface of the eyelids.

CDC : 3 People often call conjunctivitis "pink eye" because it can cause the white of the eye to take on a pink or red color. Symptoms of pink eye can vary but typically include redness or swelling of the white of the eye.

Drugs & Therapeutics for Conjunctivitis

PubMed Health treatment related to Conjunctivitis: 62

Eye drops or ointments that contain antibiotics are often given as a treatment for conjunctivitis just in case it is a bacterial infection , even though conjunctivitis is more commonly caused by viruses . But antibiotics are only effective against bacteria , and have no effect on viruses. If the infection is viral, only the symptoms can be treated. Some people use non-antibiotic eye drops. Cold or warm compresses are also common. The effects of these treatments have not been properly studied, though. It is not clear if they are helpful, useless or possibly even harmful. If conjunctivitis is caused by an allergy , it can be treated with allergy medicine such as antihistamines .
