Background: Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) has been declared by WHO as one of the top 10 global health threats facing humanity and it becomes pertinent to find solutions to combat it. Drug resistant pathogens become rampant due to overuse or misuse of antimicrobials. Ayurveda has solutions for this above issue to prevent the use of antimicrobials. Conjunctivitis could manifest due to viral or bacterial or allergic etiology but Ayurveda always considered methods to enhance immunity to control these conditions in early stages.

Starting early management in the prodromal stage described in Ayurveda, facilitates quick, inexpensive management and could be a solution to prevent prescribing antimicrobials.

Methods and Assessment: Done with photos and teleconsultation in prodromal stage. Cases manifesting prodromal symptoms shared photos morning and evening.

Questions recorded in detail confirmed prodromal symptoms, reduction or aggravation of symptoms was ensured.

Results and Conclusion: Simple lifestyle, diet and Bidalaka (topical application) were suggested. More than 9 cases were recorded, significant results recorded in 3 to 4 days, nearly 6 cases responded only with the above. And 3 more cases prescribed oral consumption of Amruthasatwa 125 mg mixed with honey thrice a day. All symptoms cleared up in 4 to 5 days and usually without Ayurveda treatment it persists for 12 to 15 days.

Management during prodromal stages ensures better outcomes.
