Convenient Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye) Treatment for Patients in St. Johns, MI
Conjunctivitis is an eye condition that frequently occurs in young children, but adults can get it, too. The nickname “pink eye” refers to the most obvious symptom: redness of the white part of the eye. It’s caused by inflammation of the eye’s transparent tissue, called the conjunctiva. Although conjunctivitis will often clear up on its own in a couple of days, it’s a good idea to seek medical treatment to confirm the diagnosis and prevent the possibility of worsening symptoms, especially in the case of preschoolers. At Ouch Urgent Care, conjunctivitis treatment is one of the many nonemergency medical services we offer to people in the St. Johns, Michigan, community.

When Is It a Good Idea to Seek Conjunctivitis Treatment?
Pink eye is typically caused by either a viral or bacterial infection, or it can result from an allergic reaction. Depending on the cause, you or your child may need antiviral or antibiotic medication or some other conjunctivitis treatment to speed up recovery.
