Symptoms of allergic pink eye can be very unsettling, especially if you’ve only recently developed it. The conjunctiva is a protective film that covers the inner eyelid and white part of the eye. When it becomes inflamed, red and watery you have conjunctivitis or pink eye.
If you have allergic pink eye, allergens, such as pollen or dust mites could be causing the symptoms. Not bacteria or viruses. So it can’t spread from one person to another, in other words it’s not contagious pink eye. Either way, it’s important not to touch or rub your eyes as this could irritate them more.
In this article we discuss the symptoms and causes of allergic pink eye. Later we talk about how allergic pink eye is diagnosed and treated.
