Severe pink eye 3 wks ago. Eyes dry at night and a little crusty in AM still. How long til it gets better? Can I wear contacts? Makeup?
Pink eye: If you can send a photo that may help us see if you had epidemic keratoconjunctivitis (EKC) and residual scar tissue. Consult with us to determine if it is safe to go back to your contact lenses: depends if you had EKC.
Not recommended: It is likely contaminated. Throw it away.
After: It is reasonable to start wearing makeup after your symptoms resolve.
Probably not: If you have classic pink eye, then it is a viral illness which your body will develop antibodies to. You can then use the make up after you get over the pink eye. Do not share it however and you might consider that in your more intimate moments, that the virus might be on your make up and be spread to others.
Throw it out: The best way to avoid reinfection just throw it away.

After having conjunctivitis, how long should I wait before putting on eye makeup if I replace it?
Conjunctivitis/makeu: If it is infectious conjunctivitis you have to wait till the infection has completely cleared, if the make up was the cause of allergic conjunctivitis than you have to use a different make up after itching and burning is gone.
I have pinkeye but I did not go to the doctor and today was the 3rd day and the redness went away so how long should I wait to put on contacts and eye makeup?
Till it's over: Your doctor should instruct you to stop wearing your contact lenses until your pink eye has completely resolved. Whether viral or bacterial, the critters causing your pink eye can survive on your contacts and reinfect you. Better yet, throw out that pair and start a fresh pair after your pink eye has resolved. But don't start wearing contact lenses again until after your pink eye has resolved.See 1 more doctor answer
I woke up with double pink eye with green discharge. Will collodial silver drops help? How long do I wait to see dr?
Best see doc today: Most conjunctivitis ("pink eye") is due to viruses; adenonvirus it the name of one of the common causes. However, "green discharge" is worrisome for a bacterial infection, in which case an antibiotic eyedrop or ointment may be necessary. And even a viral infection may benefit from soothing eyedrops. Colloidal silver isn't likely to help. Call your doctor's office, even though it's the weekend.
See below: A miminum of 24 hours after all symptoms have abated.
How long do I have to wait after pink eye seems cleared up before I can wear contacts? Can I wear them as soon as I don't have any more itchiness from the pink eye, or do I need to wait longer? .
Once: Once all symptoms of conjunctivits (pink eye) are clear, contact lens wear can usually be resumed. Old contacts, contact lens case, and solution should be discarded to minimize risk of re-infection. Redness, pain, blurred vision, watery or mucous discharge are common symptoms of pink eye.See 2 more doctor answers
