Is yes then how many times?

Hello, any updates?

Liebe Patienten und Eltern,

mein Name ist Steingrube, ich bin Fachärztin für Kinder- und Jugendmedizin und beantworte gerne Ihre Fragen.

Hello, one moment please.

If it is a bacterial conjunctivitis, you might not have treated it long enough. You can continue with gent-ophthal 3 times a day until the eyes look fine and then fot two more days.

Does your son have a cold and snotty nose as well?

You can clean the eyes with black tea (20 min brewed and cooles down) always form outside to inside, in direction of nose.

Maybe the tear duct is blocked as well. Can you see tears running daily?

Hello Sir, the eye drops were used for 8 days in total.. no he does not have any tears or cold but may be some stuffy nose in night. Can I use the nose drops for that

You can use nose drops or spray. Maybe the tearducts are blocked, so the mucus can't pass through the nose and the eyes won't clear up properly.

The nose drops can help with that.

If the eyes still won't get better till Tuesday, please go back to your pediatrician. He/She can do a swab of the eyes to see, what kind of bacterial growths is happening and what antibiotic will help.

Do you have any further questions?

Nose drops are to be used as necessary like we normally do ? or it has specific application, like I have to use it after Iput eye drops? Or if there is dirt in eye?

I would use them every night at bedtime and if necessary (dirt in eye) up to 2 more times during the day as well. Altogether you should not use them for more than a week.

Please end the chat by clicking on 3 - 5 stars on your upper right, if you have no further questions.

Both drops can be used at the same time or at different times.
