Pink eyes: Pink eyes are very contagious to others. It is unusual to have only one eye involved and thus it may well be from a bacterial infection. Since the eyes drain into the nose via a duct, it is not surprising that tear may drain into the nose area. If the problem is getting worse or not improved after 3 days, see your doctor.
