Treat an Infected Eye in the Wilderness
Eye infections are possible if the terrain you are frolicking in has lots of wind, flying dust and debris. To be on the safe side, consult a doctor about carrying antibiotic eye ointment in your first aid kit if you are trekking in dusty and windy climate.
1. Evaluate for the signs and symptoms of an eye infection: swelling, redness, itchiness or discharge.
2. Flush the eye liberally with disinfected water several times a day.
3. Apply a prescribed antibiotic eye ointment in the eye - follow the instructions on the prescription label.
4. Evacuate immediately if the symptoms persist. Antibiotic therapy may be necessary.
