Mgt: Conjunctivitis or pink eye is very contagious. I would recommend that your two month old see your pediatrician. At this age infection may spread more easily to other areas and they also may have different susceptibility. Your 18 month old probably has the same infection and can start the Tobramycin drops, but each child should have their own dispenser.
