Allergic Conjunctivitis Eye Drops
Does allergic conjunctivitis respond to the eye drops for bacterial conjunctivitis? And vice versa does bacterial respond to antihistamine drops?
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.

Yesterday found out I have acute allergic conjunctivitis in my right eye. I was prescribed tobrex. Wondering when can I wear my contacts. ?
Wait: Tobrex is an antibiotic used for bacterial eye infections. I recommend discontinuing contact lenses until your infection is resolved, usually 7-10 days. Now if you truly have an allergic conjunctivitis, then you are on the wrong medication.

I have allergic conjunctivitis and I need answers about eye discharge. Is it contagious, how do I treat it, do I need to see doctor?
M.D. visit: If you have light sensitivity and thick discharge it could be an infection of the conjunctivae. If there is eye pain and redness, I would recommend seeing an Opthalmologist right away. Allergic conjunctivitis may be treated by gently rinsing the eye with sterile saline, avoiding the triggering agent and taking an antihistamine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Bloodshot eyes, clear discharge, fuzzy vision. No pain. Not allergic conjunctivitis or dry-eye. Prednisolone helped, but symptoms returned. Ideas?
See eye doctor: But I suspect that you may have dry eyes which may respond to regular use (3-4x/day) of artificial tear preferably in single-dose form. One of the major symptoms of dry eyes is tearing because the body is trying to overcome the dryness by periodically producing tear. I would not advise using prednisone for this condition. ...Read more
