2. Aloe Vera Gel
Aloe vera contains a lot of good stuff for combating infections and easing discomfort. This includes aloin and amodin which have both antibacterial and antiviral properties. It is also great for reducing inflammation and may help to encourage blood flow, speeding up recovery. Dab a little around the eye and eyelid making sure that none gets in your actual eye. According to studies, this can be used on the corneal cells safely but it is a little uncomfortable.
