The 'sticky' sign of a ‘common’ eye infection – worse in the mornings


The NHS recommends seeing a doctor in certain circumstances, including if:

  • Your baby has red eyes – get an urgent appointment if your baby is less than 28 days old
  • You wear contact lenses and have conjunctivitis symptoms as well as spots on your eyelids – you might be allergic to the lenses
  • Your symptoms have not cleared up after two weeks.

Or you can seek help from a pharmacist if you think you have viral conjunctivitis.

They can recommend treatments such as antihistamines if it’s been caused by an allergy as well as eye drops.
