Generally no. : If it is a bacterial infection, it should only respond to antibiotics much like allergic conjunctivitis should only respond to only allergy drop like antihistamine/and or mast cell stabilizer drop. However some infections can cause itchiness in which case an allergy drop is added in addition to an antibiotic drop. For further info/rx, feel free to consult me at healthtap.com/rebeccamammo CKKMCR
