In brief: Call PCP

You may wish to call your pcp.
If he/she knows you, them may call in a medicaiton for you based on your phone conversation and their knowledge of you. Otherwise, you may have to go to the nearest er. N0 tc medicaions for "pink eye" that I am aware of. Moist warm compresses, warm showers, bathing & getting the head wet all may help. If the eyes are red, "goopy" and if there is fever, go to er.

The vast majority of pink eye gets better on its own.
Use tears and warm soaks. Also be careful not to contaminate others.
