    Yes, it can help pink eyes and it speed up the recovery of virus caused pink eye. You can mix sugar with some warm water. Use a cotton ball to soak into this sugar water. Put the cotton ball on eyes as a warm compress or you can take the water as eye dropper a few times per day. It could help clean secretion of eyes and the crust around eyes. It can soothe your eyes and reduce the pain. It is mainly used to treat viral conjunctivitis. It is recommended by some nurses as home remedy care for conjunctivitis. You can have a try to see if it makes you feel better. As too allergic pink eye, you don't need to do anything. As long as you get away from the allergen, the situation would better very soon. If you are suffering from bacterial pink eye, you can try some antibiotics to control the infection. Using warm or cold compress is OK, if you feel more comfortable with it. But remember to use the separate compress for each eye.
