How long does pink eye last?
How long pink eye lasts depends on what caused it. Common pink eye symptoms can last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.
Many types of pink eye are contagious, but only after the symptoms emerge.
It appears people are not contagious during the incubation period of pink eye — the time of up to a few days between when they are exposed and when the symptoms begin.
If your pink eye is caused by a common viral infection and no other complications occur, then your eyes should clear up within a few days to two weeks.
Pink eye also can be caused by bacterial conjunctivitis, which — even with treatment such as prescription antibiotic eye drops — can last up to a month or longer. However, with this type of pink eye, people should no longer be contagious 24 hours after antibiotic treatment begins.
Controversal question. However the most common answer is, as long as there is discharge from the eye, the eye is pink/red AND 24 hours after antibiotics are prescribed. It is important to wash hands frequently and not shake hands, share makeup, share toys or do any type of activities with others that could cause the bacteria from the infection to spread and cause them to get pink eye and/or another infection. Hope this helps.
Most early sign of pink/eye...before discharge is often cured with a Baby Shampoo (few drops in water) solution. Wash eyes out with tearless baby shampoo...and the early signs of pink/eyes is gone after a couple of days.
