    Question:

    What drops can be used to treat bacterial infection in children under 2?


    Answer:

    Most cases of "pink eye" in children are caused by a virus and not bacteria, so antibiotic eyedrops are not helpful in most cases. However, if a young child does have a bacterial infection of their eye, common antibiotic eyedrops used in young children are Polytrim, moxifloxacin, ofloxacin, azithromycin, and tobramycin.
