Can I safely use Tobradex (tobramycin and dexamethasone) suspension instead if Alrex for a mild case of allergic conjunctivitis?
Yesterday found out I have acute allergic conjunctivitis in my right eye. I was prescribed tobrex (tobramycin). Wondering when can I wear my contacts. ?
Wait: Tobrex (tobramycin) 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. If you have goopy, sticky discharge and only have itchy watery eyes with scant stringy discharge, then i'd use otc zaditor™ twice daily for symptom control. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

No: Do not use any medications for your baby that are not prescribed for your baby for that specific thing. For now use a cool washcloth to remove any drainage and take your baby in to her doctor for evaluation. It is unlikely that what she has is allergic at her age. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not if viral: The trade name is tobradex (tobramycin and dexamethasone) can be used to treat some forms of conjunctivitis. "pink eye" is lay term for viral conjunctivitis. Tobramycin is an antibacterial so typically will not treat viral infections. Dexamethasone is a steroid which has an anti inflammatory effect and can help with redness and pain.
