I had not heard that one but it sure seems messy? Would petroleum jelly be sterile enough? I would not have thought so but if the doctor recommended doing that it must be ok. I suppose there are several safe remedies but the bottom line is listen ONLY to a real physician when deciding to try some new remedy since a lot of "home remedies" might do more harm than good,, some of them border on stupidity! ( See post # 54 about holding a heat source close the eyes as a remedy- wow, how dumb can some people be?
