What Caused Pink Eye
Most of the cases of this disease are a viral infection. Conjunctivitis or pink eye if it gets worse then it will turn in to red eye. You usually need to consult with an eye specialist if this happens. The other causes for pink eyes are usually because of allergies, infection, dry eyes, chemical and smokes (Oh, I must be sure to avoid a smokers). Since it is often causes by viral infection, it is easily spreading and since it is a virus that caused it there are no treatments for that. All you can do now is to prevent it from spreading to you. So if you meet a person with a swelling eyelid, a lot of tearing and a swollen area in front of the ears are sure to avoid him/her.
