Treating conjunctivi: Conjunctivitis can be due to viral infection, in that case it will not produce much in the way of pus or sticky eyelids/eyelashes(this is a sign of bacterial infection). Bacterial infections can be treated with a triple antibiotic eye ointment which is available over ythe counter. Viral infections go away on their own, just wash your eyes with warm water or use saline drops several times/day
