10. Tea Bags

Another natural remedy for pink eye is to use tea bags as compresses. Black tea has soothing properties that can help to relieve redness, pain, and itching. After cleaning any secretions from the eye, apply cold black tea bags to the affected eyelid. Be careful not to open the eye while the tea bag is applied, as this could cause irritation. After use, discard the teabags immediately so that they cannot spread a potential infection to anyone who may touch them. You should always treat pink eye as a condition that is extremely contagious, even if you think it may be caused by allergies instead.
