I don’t know what a pink eye is, but I got it. It first I thought it was only a process a pink eye becoming a red eye caused by dust infection. I just ignore it and I found that my eyes were not going to be better after a day. It still a pink eye like before and even my body caught a fever. What’s wrong with this? A pink eye and a fever? I think it was not only a simple infection or irritation that can disappear after a few moments, because it stays. I have to find the right medication to stop making eyes getting worst.

In fever condition I went to a doctor to find out what a pink eye causes. The doctor said, I got conjunctivitis caused by a virus. It can infect us by water, air that contain the virus that make contact to the eye, maybe because I didn’t wash my hand properly and wipe my eyes with it. Not only a virus, there are some bacteria can caused a pink eye also. Usually a pink eye will goes away after 7 to 10 days without medical treatment. The doctor says a Pinkeye is very common. It usually is not serious. Common symptoms of pinkeye are: Eye redness (hyperemia), swollen, red eyelids, more tearing than usual, feeling as if something is in the eye (foreign-body sensation or keratoconjunctivitis), an itching or burning feeling, mild sensitivity to light (photophobia), drainage from the eye.

A pink eye can be more serious if you have this kind of condition:

• Have a condition that decreases your body’s ability to fight infection (impaired immune system).

• Have vision in only one eye.

• Wear contact lenses.

The doctor says to cure a pink eye usually using antibiotic treatment for a few days and it will goes away.
