In brief: See your doctor

Sorry but seeing a doctor is important to make sure of the diagnosis.
Why? Because some forms of viral pink eye can lead to blindness if not properly diagnosed and treated. This is something that you should not skimp on..

In brief: Social distance

If you use a boric acid eyewash, be sure that you boil the water first to sterilize it and then dissolve the boric acid.
Also, any pink eye that is not improving in 24-48 hours means you should see a physician. The best home remedy is prevention, and that means social distancing from family menbers who have the condition, hand washing, not sharing pillows, towels, etc.
