Possibly viral: Most "pinkeye" or conjunctivitis is actually viral, so antibiotic eye drops/ointment are usually not effective. Viral conjunctivitis tends to run it's course in 7-10 days. It can be very contagious, spreading from one eye to the other or to other people. Hand washing is essential. The same viruses that cause pink eye can also cause upper respiratory infections, so your symptoms may be related. ...Read more

Pink eye is not dangerous and can often be left untreated. Just see an ophthalmologist to make sure it is actually pink eye and not something worse. Feel better and drink lots of fluids. Good luck. ...Read more
The past 3 times I've been sick with a cold/flu I also had pink eye. Sometimes it's both eyes or other times just one. Will this keep happening?
Maybe: Reddish discoloration of the eyes is common in upper respiratory infections, and may not always be associated with a viral conjunctivitis (commonly called "pink eye"). The mucous membrane lining the sinuses is connected to the conjunctiva via a small canal (the nasolacrimal duct). Thus any inflammation in the sinuses can carry over into the eye as well, and it can be very asymmetric. ...Read more
