What should I do if my child has pink eye?

Cleanse the eyes with a warm damp washcloth or cotton balls. Use a soothing eye drop such as Tearsol. Encourage your child to frequently wash their hands and keep them away from their eyes to prevent it from spreading to other people.
Does your child have thick and puss like drainage?
Contact our office at (301) 279-6750. Your child may need antibiotic eye drops, which we can often (but not always) prescribe over the phone.
