What Causes Pink Eye?
Pink eye, also known as conjunctivitis, is an extremely common eye infection that can affect kids and adults alike. There are a number of factors that can lead to pink eye, including:
- The common cold, COVID-19, and other respiratory infections
- Herpes simplex virus
- Exposure to bacteria
- Seasonal allergies
- A foreign object in the eye
- Blocked tear ducts (in babies)
What Are the Symptoms of Pink Eye?
The symptoms of pink eye can vary in severity and duration based on the cause of the infection. Most people experience the following in one or both eyes:
- A gritty sensation
- Frequent tearing
- Discharge that can form a crust overnight
If you’re experiencing pink eye symptoms, it’s important to promptly seek medical treatment, avoid wearing contacts until the infection has cleared, and thoroughly clean pillowcases and eyeglasses. It’s also a good idea to wash makeup brushes and replace eyeliner and mascara.
