Health Tip: Is it Pinkeye?

(HealthDay News) -- Pink eye (conjunctivitis) is a common, often highly infectious inflammation of the conjunctiva, the eye's outermost layer and inside of the eyelid.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention mentions these common symptoms of pinkeye:

  • Swelling and redness of the inside of the eyelid and/or white area of the eye.
  • An increase in tear production.
  • Crustiness on the eyelid and/or lashes.
  • Discharge from one or both eyes that may be yellow, white or green.
  • An itchy or burning sensation, or a feeling that there's something gritty in the eye.
  • Increased sensitivity to light.
