Here is a bonus home remedy besides the list below:
Lavender Washrag Compress
Wash your hands thoroughly.
Fill a small bowl halfway with warm/hot water, add 2 drops Lavender essential oil, submerge a washrag until it’s thoroughly wet, wring it out. Place warm/hot washrag over the infected eye for five minutes. Apply 3 times a day. Please note: Warm, moist compresses can spread infection from one eye to the other. Use a different compress for each eye, and use a clean compress for each application.
