YES A pinch or two of Sodium Bicarbonate diluted in warm water. Applied with cottom wool to the eye allowing the eye to be bathed in solution. Use SEPARATE cotton wool pads for each eye to avoid cross contamination of the eyes. Works very quickly. Within 24 hours results were very good. A child of 3 was not concerned by the slight "saltiness" of the Bicarb.
100% success rate. Much faster and better than antibiotic creams/lotions or potions used by other members of the family (Their problems lasted for a week or more!)
