Bad luck or hygiene

Most "pink eye" is caused by a viral infection on the inner part of the eyelid and thin moist "skin"covering the eyeball-called the conjunctiva. Once infected its called "conjunctivitis." You infect your eye when you touch a surface (or person) with the virus and rub your eye-transfering the virus. Frequent hand washing helps prevent this. Sharing towels or pillows can also cause infection.

Yes

Pink eye is caused by the same virus that causes the common cold. It is extremely contagious and can remain infective on surfaces for hours. If you touched someone with pink eye and then touched your face (Specifically your eye), you can certainly become infected. Hand washing and alcohol sanitizers effectively kill the virus, so be sure to wash after touching someone with pink eye!

Can you get pink eye from a handjob then touching your face?

Bacterial "pink eye"

Open-uri20120326-3971-6yu3fv
More commonly people can get a bacterial conjuctivitis if your partner has an untreated STD such as gonorrhea, or even just a UTI. Then after handling the genital area, and touching your eyes without washing your hands, you can transmit diseases to your eyes. I have also teated patients who ended up with unusual pathogens in their eyes after oral genital contact.

Puffy/swollen left eyelid for six months My left eyelid has been puffy and swollen for six months. Alleregy meds havent done a thing for me. I went to DR and it isnt pink eye or anything of that nature. The puffiness is now on my left side of my face too.

Many

Many many things can cause swollen eyelids (lid edema). Strange that it is just on one side. If has ben going on for six months, it is probably not an infection. It could be an allergic reaction to something. The confusing part is the one-sided-ness. I would see a local specialist to have it looked at and evaluated.
