Thank you doctor,

There is no pain, only itchiness, and crusting of eyelashes. How do I get the Moxifloxacin eye drops?

Welcome back to

It is conjunctivitis. Crusting means it is bacterial. I am unable to provide you an international prescription, but if you go to an emergency room, they will give you Moxifloxacin only. But other drops are also important.
