    Sure. Pink eye is a kind of contagious eye disease. Firstly, it can be caused byexposing to bacteria, virus, allergy and mold. Secondly, it can be caused by the spreading of inflammation of the nearby tissue. To treat pink eye, people need to use some Antibiotic Ointment and eye drops. If the problem is rather serious, oral antibiotic may be taken. The symptom will gradually lighten or disappear after one week. Generally speaking, pink eye will not cause many serious problems. If you find out the disease, take measures instantly. To prevent infecting pink eye, especially that caused by mold, people should keep their house dry, clean and usually sundry quilts and clothes. By the way, people should keep their hands clean and do not rub eyes as well.
