My baby seems to have conjunctiveitis

Hi Alex
My baby is 5 days old and seems to have conjunctiveitis. It started in just one eye but is now in both. It is a yellowy colour. I have been wiping her eyes with warm salty water to clean but they only seem to be getting worse. Any ideas?
Thanks Sharon

Answer: Hi Sharon, Your baby may need treatment as this is very infectious. Always make sure that you wash your hands after changing a nappy. See your GP for treatment. Best wishes, Alex
