A member asked:

Can you tell me some ideas for physical activity. i want to lift weights, should i do this with pink eye if i have the energy?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

OK to exercise: It is ok to exercise with pink eye (conjunctivitis) but remember that it can be very contagious. People can pick up viruses from inanimate objects even a day after they were touched by someone infected. It does take direct contact, so as long as you don't touch your eyes, or if you wash your hands or use alcohol cleanser it should be ok. The eye itself should be ok if you exercise (not swimming).
