Super contagious. The doctor can give you some eyedrops. There are also over the counter drops that you can get at your local drugstore.

Pink Eye, also known as CONJUNCTIVITIS...very contagious. I had bi-lateral conjunctivitis in the Navy once. My wife had to drive me to the ship to get the eye drops. It took about 48 hours to clear up. Now when I feel that scratchy feeling, I head out to the clinic and just say that I have conjunctivitis and in minutes I've got the drops and on my home. Don't delay if you feel that scratchy feeling behind your eyelids...and KEEP YOUR HANDS AWAY FROM THE OTHER EYE! (old fart with too many experiences of 'pink eye')

Pink eye is contagious, so make sure if you rub your eye you wash your hands. You will have to get eye drops from your doctor.

It's really contagious. I got it once just from touching something that someone with pink eye had touched. Needless to say, a few days later I ended up with pink eye. I had to go and get medications for it and be really careful to wash my hands and not to touch my other eye. And I couldn't wear my contacts, so it sucked! Just be really careful to wash your hands and try not to touch anyone if you have it..you don't want to spread the infection. It itches and isn't very comfortable.

Seriously contagious!!! If one eye is infected - take great care to wash your hands & try not to touch your face. You do not want to risk infecting both eyes. Antibiotic eye drops from an eyes doctor or primary care physician will clear it up in about a week or so.

flow see your wellness practitioner or eye wellness practitioner. ASAP! additionally do not touch them and touch something without washing your hands. crimson Eye is amazingly, VERY contagious. once you flow to the wellness practitioner and get meds., only be sure you wash something that your face has touched on the grounds which you got here down with it. mattress sheets, pillowcase, wash textile and towel. Spray your sofa, vehicle headrest with some thing this is antibacterial/antimicrobial. which will kill any form of micro organism this is on something which you have touched and could shop from you or somebody which you have are available touch with from getting it.
