Hi welcome to heath care magic

just for Red eyes need not take oral medicines.. you need to be clinically examined.. confirmed that you have got conjunctivitis.. topical application of gatiflox eye drops 3 drops 5 times a day,can be helpful.. better to avoid oral medications... consult a ophthalmologist..
