An eye infection is a very common problem that can affect people of any age. The infection can be due to bacteria, viruses, allergies or other microbiological means and can affect one or both eyes.
There are many different types of eye infections, such as:
* Warm Compresses: This is one of the most effective remedies for styes or conjunctivitis. The heat from the warm compress increases blood circulation to the area and promotes healing. It also helps reduce pain and swelling and prevent further infection.
* Saline Solution: You can use a homemade saline solution to get rid of an eye infection. A saline solution rinse is good for irritated, imflamed and itchy eyes.
* Honey: Honey has antibacterial properties that can kill harmful bacteria in the eye that may cause the infection. Manuka Honey is most effective.
