Pink eye, or conjunctivitis, is inflammation of the conjunctiva (transparent layer covering the eye). This inflammation may be caused by bacteria, fungus, allergies or viruses. Pink eye is generally very infectious, because we rub our eyes, and touch surfaces, which may be touched by other people.

The symptoms include red eyes, itchiness, tearing and if bacterial, there’ll be a yellowish discharge. Viral pink eye is very common, and may be accompanied by flu like symptoms.

Treatment will depend on cause, anti fungal and anti bacterial drops or ointments can be used in cases of fungal and bacterial conjunctivitis. Viral conjunctivitis usually clears by itself after a few days. If you experience any of these symptoms, consult so we can determine the kind of pink eye you have and advise on appropriate treatment.
