As a rule, with conjunctivitis or barley, antibacterial drops and ointments for the eyes are used, for example, "Floxal". The drug has a rapid and strong antibacterial effect, which leads to the death of almost all the most common pathogenic bacteria that cause infectious inflammatory diseases of the eyes. In barley, antibacterial ointment is applied to the inflamed area, a characteristic lump of the eyelid, at least 3 times a day until the symptoms disappear completely, but not less than 5 days, even if the symptoms have disappeared earlier.
