There is no antiviral medication for viral conjunctivitis and it doesn't answer antibiotic drops because it isn't caused by bacteria. the simplest treatment for viral conjunctivitis is to use artificial tears and straightforward painkillers, with regular lid cleaning and cold compresses. The conjunctivitis disappears when your body becomes resistant to the virus and fights the germs off, even as during a cold or ‘flu. Very rarely, steroid drops are given for severe cases of viral conjunctivitis or when the cornea is affected.
Antibiotic drops are often helpful in cases of bacterial conjunctivitis and are often prescribed for a 1 or two-week course.
Contact lenses shouldn't be worn during any sort of conjunctivitis.
