Updated: Dec 13, 2022

Pink eye is one of the ailments that can make you feel like a social outcast. If you have pink eye you are going to feel very awkward while sitting in public at the Downers Grove train station or picking up a pizza at Lantern Pizza. We recommend you see one of our doctors at Downers Grove Immediate Care asap.






In the meantime, here are 8 steps to prevent the spread of pink eye

  1. Wash your hands regularly with soap and water, especially after touching your eyes or coming into contact with someone who has pink eye.

  2. Avoid touching or rubbing your eyes, as this can spread the infection.

  3. Disinfect surfaces and objects that come into contact with your eyes, such as contact lenses, eyeglasses, and makeup, using a disinfectant solution.

  4. Avoid sharing personal items such as towels, pillows, and makeup with others, as this can spread the infection.

  5. Avoid using eye drops or other products that are not prescribed by a doctor, as they can irritate the eyes and make the condition worse.

  6. Avoid wearing contact lenses if you have pink eye, as they can trap bacteria and cause the infection to spread.

  7. If you have pink eye, avoid touching your face and avoid close contact with others to prevent the infection from spreading.

  8. If you develop symptoms of pink eye, see a doctor for proper treatment and avoid spreading the infection to others.
