So What Happened?™
thank you Ladies for all your advise. I did end up taking him to Dr. We got the eye drops and all is well. For some reason I was thinking a potato would help and I only heard one reply to that. I wanted to see if anyone knew about that..the iodine in the cut potato would absorb any bacteria. guess an old wives tale or something.

Don't mess with eyes...pink eye can get bad really fast! Just go to the doc and get the drops.

Soft contact lenses solution... apply it every couple of hours and right before bed and when you wake up. Seemed to work for me as well as that pricey stuff the doctor prescribed. Good luck, it's no fun!

If you don't treat it soon it will turn into a worse infection and cause other problems...the antibiotic drops are the best and quickest way to fix it. The sooner you start the drops, the less time it takes to heal.
