Pink eye is another word for conjunctivitis, which is caused by an inflammation of the conjuctiva. This is the very thin clear tissue that lines the inside of the eyelid, as well as the white part of the eye. It causes the eye to become incredibly irritated, red and swollen. Pink eye is also quite contagious, which is why children tend to get it often since it’s easily spread in school or other child-centered places. 

Most of the time, pink eye is not serious, and when treated properly, it will go away without damaging your vision or eyes. While it’s always best to seek professional medical help when needed, there are some natural ways to treat it from home too.
Here are 20 home remedies to help you get rid of pink eye.

1. Cold Compress

One of the most useful home remedies for pink eye is a cold compress. This can help relieve swelling and itching, as well as some inflammation to the eye as well. While a cold pack won’t get rid of the virus or bacteria causing the conjunctivitis in the first place, it will help soothe it and lessen irritation. Use a clean cloth and soak it in cold water. After wringing out the excess water, place it directly on the eye for 5 to 10 minutes at least 3 to 4 times a day. Just make sure that you don’t keep using the same cloth over and over again as the bacteria or virus will just remain on the material, possibly infecting the other eye if only one is affected.
