Conjunctivitis Symptom #2: Pus

Pus is a thick substance that commonly occurs at the site of infections. It is made up mostly of bacteria and white blood cells that have died as the body battles the infection. It will ooze out from the eye, although it is not dangerous in itself but it is a sign that you should get treatment as soon as you can.

While pus is easily washed away, more of it will be produced as the body continues to fight against the infection. It can also be very unsightly, although this can be beneficial as it will encourage patients to cover up the infected eye. You probably won’t want people to see it, but it would be best to stay at home until you have recovered anyway.
