The word from Columbus
Regional Medical Center is more children are visiting the doctor's office...all
because of pink eye.
The symptoms of pink eye
include red, tearful eyes with thick, yellow drainage.
This common eye problem is
mostly caused by virus, bacteria and allergy. Pollen is the big culprit this
time of year, sparking the infection.
April Hartman, a
pediatrician at Columbus Regional, says there is an easy way to avoid the eye
"Pink eye is contagious.
when one gets a pink eye you know more will be getting it,” said Hartman. “The
absolute best way to avoid getting pink eye is to wash your hands...for
everything. Wash your hands, wash your hands.”
Children should stay away
from others after they receive at least 24 hours of treatment to avoid
spreading infection to others.
Pink eye is usually
treated with allergy medications. Doctors suspect this is going around some of
the local daycare centers.
When employees suspect the
infection, they call the guardians immediately.
