Why this herbal remedy can treat eye infections? Dandelion is one of the strongest natural antibiotic herbs. Dandelion can cool down the body, reduce inflammation. Plantain is known as a strong diuretic and also an effective antibiotic, which can reduce swelling caused by inflammation. According to the traditional medicine theory, when treating a disease, you need to use some agent to “guide” the medicine to the right spot – the affected area. Daisy (or chamomile) flower is known to work on eyes, and also have cooling properties, so it becomes the agent that guides the antibiotic to work on the infected eyes.
