In brief: Conjunctivitis

A pink eye can be due to many things.
Classically a "pink eye" is due to viral conjunctivitis and can be very contagious with severe itchiness. If you do have true pink eye, the most natural way to treat it is cold ice packs for itchiness; cold tears in refrigerator helps also. If severe an eyemd can rx stronger drops. If discharge, use warm towel to clear it away. Any vision change, see eyemd.
