yes, i have used it. a friend's baby had it and the whole family (mom, dad, baby) kept passing it back and forth until they got it treated. since we had been exposed, i figured that's what it was when her eyes got a little red and mattery. s.o. and i both started having symptoms too, so i just treated all of us with several drops of breast milk a couple times a day. (he was hard to convince, but i made him fear going blind or to the doctor to get drops, haha.)
i expressed the milk into a medicine dropper, and applied it that way. it took about a week, but it cleared up completely for all of us.
