Types of pink eye syndromes or conjunctivitis

Following a canonical medical research a few specific pink eye problems have been detected.

* Allergic conjunctivitis- Pink eye syndromes affecting an individual are the itching, and swelling in the infected eyes. Though the inflammation or discharge happens to be negligible, the chances of excessive irritation can’t be ruled out in some chronic allergic pink eye symptoms. The eyes affected from allergic conjunctivitis swell to some extent, a condition known as edema of the pink eye’s infection. Only in rare cases does the allergic pink eye discharge some pus-like substance, known as mucus.

* Bacterial conjunctivitis- Bacteria pink eye or conjunctivitis discharges pus-like grey or yellowish substance from the conjunctivitis-affected eyes causing as a result a stingy experience to the affected individual. The substance discharged from the infected eyes is known by different terms such as mucus, gowl, goop, gunk, googies, eye crust and gound. The thick discharge (mucus) causes the conjunctivitis-affected eyes to get stick during the sleep following which an individual, affected from bacterial infection of pink eye faces a great difficulty in opening his eyes.

The adjoining regions of the eyes, affected from bacterial conjunctivitis, develop some crusts filled with thick pussy substance.Though discharge is not to be noticed in bacterial conjunctivitis, a thick substance is noticed over the infected eyes. A bacteria has been identified by the medical researchers, known as Chlamydia trachomatis or Moraxella which exacerbates the pinkeye syndrome rendering the affected eyes dark-red in color. The person affected from such type of pink eye complains of something lodged in his eyes and causing there a scratchy pain.

What is remarkable to notice in such type of pinkeye is its coming into effect stealthily catching the individuals unawares of its eruption for three days. It is only after two to three days of period when an individual encounters pink eye syndromes in a form of redness of eyes, irritation and discharge of thick mucus from the eyes.

* Viral conjunctivitis- Viral pink eye syndromes emerge due to upper respiratory tract infection, also known as sore throat. Such type of pink eye causes severe itching or burning sensation accompanied by watery discharge. Viral conjunctivitis or pink eye infection occurs in one eye and affects another one much faster. As the viral infection exists unless completes its natural cycle, no any remedy can treat the pink eye syndrome completely. Only a relief from inflammation can be had adhering to some natural or effective home remedies, meant for the pink eye. The relief allows the viral pinkeye to go off after completing its period.

* Chemical conjunctivitis- Such type of conjunctivitis occurs due only to toxic substances or chemical irritants causing discharge and itchiness in the eyes. A few chemical conjunctivitis syndromes are lesions-like redness in the eyes, watery discharge and irritation. The harmful chemicals causing pink eye syndromes may include caustic alkalis like sodium hydroxide and many other other hazardous chemicals.

* ICN (inclusion conjunctivitis of the newborn) - It is developed by a bacteria known as Chlamydia trachomati causing pussy discharge from the eyes affected from pink eye infection.

* Neonatal conjunctivitis
