Should I use baby shampoo to clean an eye with pink eye?

Yes. It is good to get the build up off the lids and lashes to avoid reinfection. Be sure to wash hands with antibacterial soap as pink eye is very contagious!
No. Cleaning by wiping away crusted dicharge is all that is recommended. 'pink eye' is usually a viral infection of the outer eye. It gets better on its own , usually within 1 to 2 weeks. If there is any vision loss or change call your eye professional or primary doctor immediately. Diluted baby shampoo is used for maintenance treatment of chronic eyelid coditions.
