Pink eye: I suggest you consider antibiotic eye drops, would help to have doctor examine your eye before prescribing the drops...

Not all that is pink: Not all that is pink in the eye is an infection. and even if infection, can be caused by things other than bacteria. like a virus. If there is no pus drainage, and you have no fever. likely NOT a bacterial conjunctivitis. which many people mistakenly label "pink eye". If you have sinus type headache, itching of the eye. sneezing, need to rub eye or watering of eye, that can suggest an allergy.
