Medical Alert: Conjunctivitis

Wakari School is had a number of cases of conjunctivitis in recent weeks. This is a extremely contagious condition that affects the eyes.

Symptoms can include:

  • redness of the white part of the eye
  • irritation or gritty feeling (like having sand in the eye)
  • discharge (may be clear, milky or pus-like)
  • more tears than usual
  • swelling of the eyelids
  • crusting of the eyelids or eyelashes
  • itchiness

Conjunctivitis causes red, irritated and sticky eyes.

Children with conjunctivitis should not go to school until their eyes are better (this usually requires treatment). Conjunctivitis can last from 2 days to sometimes as long as 3 weeks.
