In brief: Not really

Pink eye usually gets better by itself after a few days.
It can't hurt to try some antibiotic drops if it persists.

In brief: Viral conjunctivitis

Pink eye may be due to viral or bacterial infection, or particularly at this time of year, allergy.
There are several otc products if you know what is causing the conjunctivitis, but the best thing to do is to check with the pediatrician and make sure this is not bacterial, which may require topical antibiotics.
