    Honestly, I wouldn't blame them. That's how I managed to get pink eye, I washed my face with a wash cloth that my sister used, and I contracted it from that.

    Only I got it far worse than she did, I did the same drops for a week, then I had to go back and get stronger drops, because the normal ones weren't working.

    Does pink eye hurt much, or is it just an irritating itch?

    It's a very irritating itch, and because your eyes "weep" so much, they get crusted over, especially in the morning. There were some mornings I had trouble getting my eyes open because they were pretty much glued shut.

    You know its pink eye, if it produces fluid. You'll notice this when you get up in the morning. Its also obviously pinkish or reddish. And it is itchy.

    Anyway, just don't touch your infected eye at all. If you have to, make sure you wash your hands throroughly after that. Don't touch the other eye.
    The only medication they have is for bacterial type of pink eye by prescription. If you have viral type... no dice... you're gonna have to wait it out.

    Search google for relief methods.

    EDIT: if you cannot afford it... you can wait for 2-3 days and see if it dissipates (it will if its caused by allergies), but if its bacterial, you're gonna need Rx.

    it wasn't pink eye thankfully, it's practically gone now whatever it was... probably just irritation/allergens

    I've had really bad eye infections from sleeping in my contacts too long, that shit sucked. Felt like someone was scratching my eyes with steel wool. Worst part is I drove for 4 hours like that in bright ass sunlight but I couldn't wear sunglasses because I couldn't put my contacts in.

    Fuck that shit.

    yeah I stopped doing that shit after my eye doctor almost diagnosed me with glaucoma.. said wearing the contacts at night wasn't letting my eye oxidize and pressure was getting very high
