In brief: Nothing
Takes longer to recover. Sometimes can have subepithelial corneal infiltrates.
Steroids may help to heal faster. Most often resolve on their own with time.

In brief: Usually better
Most cases of "pink eye' resolve spontaneously.
If it worsens of course, you need to be seen to establish the cause to prevent potential eye damage.
