I've got pink eye and read that a drop of honey in each eye makes it go away. Should i try it?

In brief: Ineffective

It is possible that a bit of honey might make the eye temporarily more comfortable but the usual pink eye is a viral condition that must run its course and for which honey would be of no benefit.
