Christmas is around the corner this year over here in Nigeria we are celebrating without hammattan so strange!!!Amidst the MMM saga,Ultimate cycler upgrade and other depressing issuses. No matter what we all need to take care good care of ourselves. This Christmas period comes with its own wahala such as appolo aka Pink eye aka eye fire. Taking a walk down the streets especially this season you must have met a man or woman looking like one eyed Sunday in Macmillan. Ogom my last born interprets that the redness of the eye as you being stingy and I know you all growing up have the same interpretation to such too. Well everyone has his or her own story to tell and here is mine


Conjunctivitis popularly known as pinkeye is an inflammation of the conjunctiva. But what the hell is conjunctiva? Conjunctiva is a very tiny transparent tissue covering the white part of the eye. The earlier made sentence means that anyone with conjunctivitis is bound to have red eyes which totally makes you look like one agbero in surulere.

The frog doesn’t run in vain there is always a cause for each problem. In the case of conjunctivitis the causes includes :

➡ Allergies like dusts that disturbs the conjunctiva

➡ Viruses

➡ Bacteria

➡  Irritants such as shampoo and chlorine. Getting shampoo into the eye area can lead to pinkeyes. For the chlorine part I guess it explains why your conjunctiva turns pink each time you visit some pool



The bible said by their fruits we shall know them ..yea that your pastor tight there pastor TONY….lol for every swelling you see in the eye region shouldn’t be seen as conjunctivitis. Pinkeyes gives the signs below to announce its arrival.

➡ The eyelids may become swollen like akara balls with some sticky materials on them.

➡ Your vision may become blury due to the massive white sticky discharge on the eyelids.

➡  The eyes produces water more often The eyes becomes more sensitive to light. I guess by now you have a clue of how pinkeyes arrives. On to the next one:
