Answer

Consultations with an infectious disease specialist and/or a pediatrician may be indicated in suspected or proven chlamydial or N gonorrhoeae infections.

An experienced ophthalmic pathologist can be an excellent resource in determining the cause of a resistant conjunctivitis by interpreting conjunctival scrapings.
