When do you need to see a doctor with conjunctivitis?

Drainage or fever. There are 3 types of "pink eye". The bacterial type has redness of the inner eyelid and pus drainage that continues all day. The viral and allergy type may be goopy in the morning but less during the day. Allergy types may be more itchy. See a doctor if the drainage continues or if you have a fever. Avoid rubbing your eyes and wash hands frequently no matter what type it may be.
