How to Prevent the Re-infection of Pink Eye?

Q:
How to prevent the re-infection of pink eye?

A:
Pink eye is a kind of inflammation or infection on the transparent membrane (conjunctiva) that covers the white part of your eyeball and lines your eyelid. Since the small blood vessels in the conjunctiva are inflamed, they’re more visible. Then your eyes appear to be pink or reddish.

Viral and bacterial pink eye are highly contagious and can be easily spread from person to person. Allergic pink eye is not contagious. It should be noticed that people who have had pink eye may contract it again.

Here are some methods to prevent re-infection of pink eye:

  • Often wash your hands.
  • Do not touch your eyes with your hands.
  • Change your towel.
  • Change your eyeglasses or contact lenses.
  • Use new eye cosmetics.
