Is pink eye contagious before symptoms appear? We had a family get together Sunday, now a cousin has it and I'm worried about myself and my kids.
Look for discharge: The red, discharging, matted eye is what is the contagion. Prior to that if you are not having symptoms it is unlikely you or anybody similar is contagious. Frequent hand washing and avoiding touching the face unless in the shower is recommended. Get checked if symptoms develop. Cheers.

Most commonly viral: "pinkeye" is a general term for inflammation of the white of the eye, or conjunctivitis. It is often viral, but can be bacterial or even allergic. Some forms of viral pinkeye can be quite debilitating, even leading to visual loss. Recent antiviral medications have proved quite effective against the more severe forms of conjunctivitis, so be sure to see your eye doctor at the first signs.See 1 more doctor answer
