Understanding Allergic Conjunctivitis or Pink Eye

Allergic conjunctivitis is the inflammation of the conjunctiva of the eyes due to an allergy. This sort of conjunctivitis is different from the bacterial or the contagious form of conjunctivitis. The allergic conjunctivitis occurs due to the reaction of the body or the eyes to the presence of some allergens.

Cases of allergic conjunctivitis start pouring in as the summer starts setting. As the weather becomes pleasant after a bitter winter, most of the people enjoy the weather. But this weather becomes very unpleasant for people who suffer from allergic conjunctivitis. Every year, their eyes start troubling them. The problem persists for the whole of the summer and subsides on its own as the weather becomes cooler. This happens year after year.

The prevalence of allergic conjunctivitis is more in boys than in girls. The reason for this increased incidence in boys is unknown.

How does Allergic Conjunctivitis look like

The eye becomes red and swollen. There is intense itching or irritation in the eye. One is forced to rub the eye. Watery discharge from the eye is also seen. There is increased sensitivity to light so much so that one cannot open the eyes easily and look towards any source of light. There may be thick mucous like discharge from the eyes. In severe cases, the eyelids may swell and droop so that one has difficulty opening the eyes fully.

Allergic Conjunctivitis does not spread from one to another

As the name itself suggests, this is allergic in nature. It is not bacterial in nature and therefore it is not contagious. Therefore it does not spread from one person to another. I have often come across cases in which children have been sent home from school by teachers because they fear that the infection will spread to other children. This is not true. Allergic conjunctivitis does not spread from person to person.

Homeopathy-the best natural treatment for Allergic Conjunctivitis

The allopathic system relies mainly on steroids and anti-allergic medicines for the treatment of allergic conjunctivitis. Even  then, it is unable to cure the allergy. It only ends up controlling it or keeping the symptoms under check. In homeopathy, the intention is to completely cure the allergy. Homeopathy recognizes that the immune system of the body sometimes overreacts to some seemingly harmless things. This overreaction of the body is the root cause of problem. Therefore it tries to correct the immune system.

In this the medicines that are used by homeopathy are perfectly natural medicines. None of the medicines are chemical in nature. They are made from natural sources like plants or fruits or vegetables or minerals. The basic material is further diluted by a special mechanism which reduces the content of the original matter while increasing its latent healing powers. That is why these natural homeopathic medicines do not have any side effects.
