    Pinkeye is also called conjunctivitis that is redness and swelling of the conjunctiva, the mucous membrane that lines the eyelid and eye surface. Viral and bacterial pink eye are contagious and spread very easily. The symptom of viral pink eye include redness in the white of the eye, swelling of the eyelids, itching or burning feeling of the eyelids as well. At the same time, it would cause a lot of tears. It would be last 5 to 7 days and up to 3 weeks. And the symptom of bacterial pink eye is similar to the viral pink eye, but it would have mild pain. Bacterial pink eye lasts 7 to 10 days.

Also, you should know that contacts, eyeliners can lead to pink eyes, too. By using eyeliners, they can carry many bacteria, so that it can lead to infection to your eyes, even the pink eyes, for our eyes are very sensitive to the infection.

    Yes, of course, one of the most common symptom from getting a pink eye is itchy feelings. Afterwards, you are easy to shed tears and have sensitivity to sunshine, stuff like that. The initial sign of a pink eye is accompanied by some red bloody webs in your eyes. If you have got such indications, you should get some treatment and take necessary measures to deal with it.
