In brief: Depends

May be the original infection never cleared.
Could be a sign of some other underlying disease. May be due to an anatomic problem such as the lid needs to be fixed. Might be due to an immune system issue. May not even be conjunctivitis since it could be a harbinger of something else, such as a mass. Must have it checked out.

In brief: Depends on the cause

If you have recurring conjuctivitis, it could be caused by many things.
Allergies (seasonal or environmental), eyelid inflammation (blepharitis), chronic infection (staph), or even eyelid cancer are among some of the causes. An evaluation by an ophthalmologist is warranted.
