hi everyone...

my LO's eye is going a bit glassy and and some guck in it.. have cleaned with baby shampoo and warm water which is a tip from a chemist a long time ago.. but am wondering how things stand with it if it turns into conjunctivitis..

our local docs surgery is still not open.. can the LO socialise as long as he gets eye drops.. years ago there had to be a 24 hour period with the child taking drops is that the same.

I could have sworn I read something about this recently and was just wondering.. may have to see a chemist :doh: ..xx

There is no official exclusionary period for conjunctivitus. but I have in my rules that there is a 48hr exclusion after treatment has started.

Conjunctivitis is highly infectious and spreads through little children like wildfire. I have an exclusion for it too
