My daughter had pink eye on thursday 3 days ago got drops and oddly cleared up the next day but she has had a fever since thursday we are now heading?
May be viral: Many "pink eye" infections may be caused by a virus. Like most viral infections, they may last 7-10 days no matter what you do. A viral infection may involve a fever as well. Antibiotic eye drops will not really help a viral conjunctivitis (pink eye). If your child has a fever over 101 for more than a couple of days, or seems sicker, she should see her doctor again.See 1 more doctor answer

I had pink eye and was put on ointment treatment until last friday. Have congested nasal passages and drainage. It is sunday evening & have sore throat with a couple of small white spots. No fever.
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.See 1 more doctor answer
My children have pink eye and I've had a very bad sore throat with neck pain and swollen glands for 3 days but no fever. Could they be connected?
Yes: Some viruses and bacterias can cause both conjunctivitis and throat infections. So yes they may be related. All the best and hope you all feel better.
Flu is worse: Flu can be a misdiagnosis or can be dangerous if fever goes too high and can cause dehydration. Flu can affect other organs, hence why a flu shot is recommended. 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.See 1 more doctor answer
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.
