It could be allergy.: Conjunctivitis is the medical terminology of pink eye. "Pink eye" can be from different reasons. Bacterial pink eye can easily be treated with antibiotic eye drops. Viral conjunctivitis will self resolve. Bacterial and viral causes usually don't resolve and then come right back within a week. Recurrent pink eye most likely due to some form of irritation. Must be exam by a doctor.
