In brief: Bacterial Course

Conjunctivis caused by bacteria can cause thick drainage from eye.
With use of antibiotic drop, drainage clears within 72 hrs and eye redness may continue 7-10 days with gradual improvement. After using eyedrops for 24 hours, and if pus is minimal, children can return to day care or school.
