TXT’s Taehyun Fell Sick

A little bit more information for you who might not know yet: Taehyun, or Kang Tae-hyun, is one of the members of TXT who was born in Gangnam-gu, Seoul, South Korea on February 5th, 2002. His zodiac sign is Aquarius and his blood type is A. Taehyun’s position in TXT is as a vocalist. In early August 2019, Big Hit Entertainment made an official announcement that due to TXT’s health concerns, their comeback was delayed. Originally, it was scheduled in August 2019, but then it was pushed back to September. Then Big Hit Entertainment made another statement to tell the audience that some of the members are sick. While Soobin was suffering from conjunctivitis, both Taehyun and Huening Kai contracted conjunctivitis as well. “After SOOBIN was diagnosed with the same condition earlier this month, the members immediately began living in separate quarters following the advice of medical staff in order to prevent the possibility of other members becoming infected. However, with the recent outbreak of infectious conjunctivitis, TAEHYUN and HUENINGKAI have also contracted conjunctivitis from unidentified sources,” said Big Hit.  

About Contracting Infectious Conjunctivitis

Conjunctivitis, or as people have known it Pink Eye, according to, is an inflammation of the conjunctiva, the thin, transparent layer that covers the inner eyelid and the white portion in the front of the eye (the sclera). This infection will cause irritation and the blood vessels contained in the conjunctiva are about to dilate, which is what causes red or bloodshot eyes. Although conjunctivitis is common among the children and may be caused by a minor infection, all ages may be affected. There are 3 categories of conjunctivitis which differ in offending agent, all according to Bacterial Conjunctivitis can be contracted from direct contact with bacteria associated with unclean hands, bacteria transmitted from insects and contaminated eye make-up or facial lotions. This type of conjunctivitis is contagious. Some forms are self-limiting, minor and can be resolved a bit faster with antibiotic treatment. Some forms (gonorrhea) are more severe. Viral Conjunctivitis is most commonly caused by viruses associated with the common cold. It is highly contagious and can be contracted following an upper respiratory infection through the body’s own mucous membranes, which connect the lungs, throat, nose, and eyes, or through airborne exposure to the coughing or sneezing of someone with an upper respiratory tract infection. Typically, when this type of virus occurs in one eye, it will quickly spread to the other. This spread also happens with bacterial conjunctivitis. 2.Allergic Conjunctivitis Allergic Conjunctivitis is caused by direct contact with eye irritants in those who are susceptible. This type of conjunctivitis can be seasonal (pollen, ragweed, grass, etc), or it may occur year-round (dust, fabrics, animal dander, etc). This form of conjunctivitis is not contagious. 3.Chemical Conjunctivitis Chemical Conjunctivitis is caused by exposure to irritants such as air pollution, noxious chemicals or chlorine in a swimming pool. This form of conjunctivitis is not contagious. The symptoms of this infection are:

Pink discoloration of the whites of the eye(s), Itching or burning sensation, Swollen eyelid(s), Sensitivity to light, Excessive tearing, Sticky yellow discharge from the eye(s), or watery discharge, or stringy discharge.

The treatment of contracted conjunctivitis depends on the type you have contracted. Bacterial conjunctivitis can be treated with antibiotic eye drops or ointments prescribed by your eye doctor. Viral conjunctivitis, unlike bacterial infections, cannot be treated with antibiotics. This form of conjunctivitis is self-limited, which means that the infection will go away on its own anywhere between 7 days to several weeks duration. Allergy medications (antihistamine) can help provide relief, shorten the length, and sometimes even prevent the onset of allergic conjunctivitis. If you suffer from seasonal allergies, speak with your doctor about beginning these medications early in order to get ahead of the symptoms. The treatment of chemical conjunctivitis depends on the degree of exposure. For minor irritation such as chlorine from swimming in a pool, carefully rinse the eyes and consider purchasing a good pair of goggles for future activities. More acute chemical exposure may be a medical emergency and call for immediate medical attention.

Wash your hands thoroughly and frequently with soap and warm water, Carry small bottles of hand sanitizer when in public spaces, especially if you have spent time in a school, Never share costume contact lenses or their cases, If you are suffering from cold or flu-like symptoms, avoid rubbing your eyes. Do not share personal items such as towels, washcloths, tissues or eye make-up and eye make-up brushes, Wipe down surfaces of frequently used areas or items with antibacterial cleaners. (Doorknobs, telephones, countertops, faucet handles, television remotes, etc.)
