There is always a need of reassessment in case of delayed response.There is always a possibility of a mistake in the diagnosis,or some complications developing and they have to be treated accordingly

Conjunctivitis goes off in 2 to 3 days, ofcourse it happened to me twice only. wash the eyes and put the drops and do not go out this was all told by my doctor earlier.
