Dr. Darshan Gore– Thank you ma’am, thank you.
Dr. Darshan Gore – Conjunctivitis is actually an infection. There are two causes of infection. One is bacterial type infection and the other is viral type Conjunctivitis. The virus causes red eyes, watery eyes, stickiness, itching and pain.
Dr. Darshan Gore – Viral is more common in monsoon season. And whenever many people gather at one place, such as Kumbh Mela or a yatra or a festival, then the chances of Conjunctivitis increases.
Dr. Darshan Gore – It is necessary to rest for a few days. The more the eyes remain open, the more are the chances of infection. If the patient rests, takes medicines properly, he gets well soon. It also spreads through touch, if you wear someone’s clothes then it happens through it. It is likely to spread even if you sit near an infected person, we should isolate ourselves for a few days.
Dr. Darshan Gore – Viral Conjunctivitis is becoming more common than bacterial. The effect of Viral Conjunctivitis is increasing more and more. The virus keeps on multiplying itself. It tries to become more powerful, nowadays if we see 10 cases, then 6 and 7 patients out of 10 catch viral. The patient feels more irritation in Viral Conjunctivitis. If you touch your eyes multiple times, then it will spread more, increase more and multiplication of viral will be more and the patient may suffer for more days.
Dr. Darshan Gore – If it is bacterial, then symptoms start appearing in a few hours, but there is little irritation in viral. If patients keep rubbing their eyes, they keep getting irritated. If it is viral then symptoms start appearing in a day or two. When and in how many days the patient will recover depends on his immunity. Apart from this, what is the strength of bacteria or viruses? Whether the infected person has any other disease, diabetes, blood pressure, or they are old. Even if the health is weak, it may take more days to recover, but usually if you take the medicine well, take some rest, isolate yourself, it can subside gradually.
So there are chances of getting cured in at least 3 days or maximum 10 days. Some may even take 15 days. If you follow it well for 5-7 days.
Dr. Darshan Gore – It is a bit difficult to tell, but it is commonly seen in kids, the old age group. Kids are more prone to catching Conjunctivitis as their cleanliness is also very less, so there are a little more chances in them. Old people, above 60 years of age, also have one or the other problem. They might suffer more due to Conjunctivitis.
Dr. Darshan Gore – What should we do to avoid any infection? Cleanliness is to be maintained, habits should also be good, like one should wear clean clothes, sleep on time, eat on time. Exercising is also very important. Diet should also be proper. Don’t eat junk food, eat what is cooked at home. Only then all vitamins, minerals will be available, nutrition will be good then no person will fall ill.
Through some machines, we come to know whether it is conjunctivitis or not, if it is bacterial or viral. What type of infection is there and how many days will it take to recover. This determines the treatment. We need antibiotics for bacteria. There is no treatment for Viral Conjunctivitis. For example, if we talk about the common cold, it is such a disease that it can happen to anyone and it can happen multiple times, but there is no specific treatment for it.
You should drink plenty of water. Sometimes cold compress also gives relief.
Dr. Darshan Gore – Thank you madam.
