Common pink eye symptoms & treatment

Pink eye, also referred to as conjunctivitis, is a common eye infection that occurs when the membrane that lines the inside surface of the eyelid becomes inflamed. There are different types of pink eye, including bacterial, viral, allergic, and chemical.

Pink eye symptoms

  • A thick, yellowish discharge
  • Eye crusting
  • Increased tear production
  • Itchy or burning eyes
  • Redness around the eyes

how to treat pink eye

Because there are many different root causes for pink eye, there can also be different forms of treatment. Bacterial pink eye may be treated with antibiotic eye drops, where viral pink eye may clear on its own while focusing on symptom relief. Allergic pink eye treatment focuses on removing the allergen that initially caused the reaction.
