Brief Answer:
Considerations.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for sending the question.

It sounds like you may be dealing with a case of conjunctivitis or pinkeye. This can be caused by viruses or sometimes bacteria.

Conjunctivitis can cause irritation, redness and a discharge. since your symptoms have been persistent you might benefit from a topical antibiotic solution that can be provided by your local physician.

You could try some warm compresses for several minutes 3 to 4 times per day to see if this helps alleviate some of the information. If the discomfort and discharge persist, however, I would recommend that you contact your local physician for examination and possibly to obtain a prescription of a topical antibiotic to alleviate your symptoms.

Thank you again for sending the question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Sincerely,

Dr. Galamaga
