Dr. T Jeff Russell answered:

Is it true that eye styes are contagious?

No.

Head
Styes, or hordeolums, are caused by blockage of an oil gland or hair follicle associated with bacterial infection. These will usually consolidate and come to 'head' and then drain. Local heat and massage will help them resolve. Oral antibiotics are sometimes helpful. They are not contagious.

Dr. Kate Tulenko answered:

How long does pink eye remain contagious?

Until the eye clears

Eyes
Antibiotics are usually prescribed for pink eye, but many cases are viral which is not affected by antibiotics. Therefore, it is best to wait until the eye discharge has resolved before sending a child back to school. Adults can return to work within a few days. Hand hygiene is always important as many cases of pink eye (conjunctivitis) are transmitted by hand contact.

How contagious is pink eye? How is it spread?

Extremely

Pink_eye
Another term for pink eye (viral conjunctivitis) is epidemic keratoconjunctivitis, emphasis on "epidemic." The virus is found in the tears and can survive on surfaces (tabletops, chairs, etc.) for many days. If you touch this surface and then touch your eye you can get the disease. Frequent hand washing and cleaning such surfaces can reduce transmission. It is not spread by other bodily fluids.
