Need allergy meds: 'pink eye' (conjuctivitis) is due to a viral or bacterial infection and responds to anti-biotic drops. Allergic conjuctivitis responds to allergy meds such as Patanol (olopatadine) eye drops or even otc oral meds such as benedryl, zyrtec, allegra, or Claritin (or generics). Hope you are better soon!
