    Lately i've had a bad cold and just as i thought i was getting over it, my eye has started really hurting. Its quite watery and red and as from today ive been getting a tiny bit of yellow/white discharge in it. My mate said it sounds like conjunctivitis but often it goes away on its own (or with eye drops). Do you think i should make an appt with my uni doctor? Does anyone have any advice? Please help

    you need to get an appointment because it takes forever to go down, and you are likely to keep reinfecting yourself. Also, it's really contagious.

    to be honest i wouldn't' bothere with the doctors it sounds like conjuctivitis to me. Just go to boots and ask a pharmascist and they'll tell you whether it is or not and they'll probably reccomend chloramphenicol eye drops (optrex infected eyes)

    i am the queen of conjunctivitus, which is nothing to be proud of hahaha but i've had it a fair few times .. esp at uni, living in close quarters with so many ppl etc.

    you don't really neeeed to goto the doctors, but if it's the first time you've had it and you're not 100% sure what it is, then goto your GP or whoever and have it looked at. if you are SURE its conjunctivitus, go into Boots in the pharmacy part, ask for any conjunctivitus ointment. I usually get Golden Eye Ointment...

    It'll take 2-4 days for it to go down.

    In any case, if you think its conjunctivitus, KEEP WASHING YOUR HANDS. Don't touch your eye then touch stuff around you... esp in communal areas that you share with your flatmates cause conjunctivitus is SOOO FREAKIN contagious!!!!!!! hope you're better sooon!
