In brief: Depends

There are a lot of different types of conjunctivitis.
Viral conjunctivitis needs time. Allergic conjunctivitis can be treated with allergy drops. Bacterial conjunctivitis needs antibiotic drops. There are other reasons why your eye can be red that are more serious. Best to be checked by an eye md.

In brief: Wash your hands.

Conjunctivitis has many causes and most will resolve without treatment.
The most common type caused by adenovirus is highly contagious. Wash your hands frequently so others do not come into contact with your eye secretions. See and ophthalmologist immmediately if you have significant eye pain or loss of vision or if you fail to get better on your own.

In brief: See a doctor

Disease of the eye should not be treated empirically.
Please se a doctor asap. Untreated eye disease can lead to blindness.
