During epidemics of “sore eyes” how do I keep my child from catching infection?

Avoid sending him to crowded areas such as swimming pools. If there is a child with conjunctivitis (sore eyes) with discharge from the eyes and not just redness, he should not attend school till the discharge subsides as this child can infect others. If a sibling at home has the infection, he should avoid physical contact with the sibling till the discharge from the eyes subsides. Needless to add, a child with conjunctivitis should have his/her clothes, handkerchiefs etc washed separately to avoid spread of infection.
