I noticed at breakfast a few months ago that my two-year-old son was exhibiting the beginning stages of pinkeye (puffy, watery eyes with lots of mucus building up in the corners, slight pinkish tint to the whites of the eyes). We had fought pinkeye during the previous winter, so I knew what to look for.
I began applying Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) to the bottoms of his first two toes on each foot right away, and did this several times a day for the next two-three days. I also diffused Tea Tree and Thieves in the home and in the kids' bedroom.
The mucus in his eyes dried up during the first day, and by day three, he was no longer exhibiting any signs of pink eye. My four-year-old daughter never did come down with it!
I think the key was treating it early- as soon as I noticed the first signs of pink eye. I had tried using Tea Tree for the same thing on my son last winter, but did not treat him with the oil until the second day. By that time, his case of pinkeye was much more advanced. Although the Tea Tree had helped last winter, it did not completely take it away. However, by treating his symptoms at the onset of them, it seemed to do the trick -- and quickly!
