Does pink eye itch at first?
Pink eye, or conjunctivitis, is a highly contagious bacterial or viral eye infection that occurs when the blood vessels of the transparent membrane (or conjunctiva) covering the whites of your eye becomes irritated and inflamed—thus causing the tissue to turn pink in color.
A pink eye infection can occur when the eyes are rubbed with dirty hands—typically spreading the bacteria and germs from an allergy or influenza infection into the eyes or by using dirty contact lenses. Everyone's reaction is different. Some people increase secretion first, others itch first.
