How It Works
Bacterial conjunctivitis is a highly contagious bacterial infection involving the mucous membrane of the surface of the eye.
The common symptoms are the presence of a sticky yellow-white discharge with mucous and pus, a gritty sensation in the eye, irritation and redness of the eye and watery eyes. The infection usually starts in one eye and then spreads to the other.
Chloramphenicol belongs to a group of medicines called antibiotics. It works by stopping the growth of the bacteria causing your infection. There is no evidence that this medicine is addictive.
