How do you know if you have pink eye or allergies?

I often have red and watery eyes. I think it is pink eye. I treated it with antibiotics and the symptoms went away. But later I catch pink eye again. Can you tell me it is pink eye or just allergies? Thank you in advance!

    Dear friend, both pink eye and allergies will show the same symptoms as red and watery eyes. I can't tell you exactly what your problems lies. You may need to see an eye doctor immediately. I know a doctor who is very professional and kind. I just searched on the internet to find some articles about pink eye. I'd like to share it with you. FAQ Regarding Pink Eye Hope this helped!

    Dear friend, you may allergic to some things around you. You can have your symptoms checked by an eye doctor and then ask appropriate treatment. We often use antibiotics to relieve pink eye caused by bacteria. You should avoid touching your eyes with dirty hands for there are lots of bacteria on our hands. If your doctor told you that you are allergic to some stuffs such as dust peanuts etc, you may need to avoid those allergens in future. Good luck!

    Do you have the following symptoms? 1. Redness in the white of the eye or inner eyelid. 2. Swelling of the eyelid. 3. Increased amount of tears. 3. Itchy eyes. 4. Blurred vision. But sometimes the people will just suffer from one or two symptoms in the beginning of this eye disease. The redness are the most outstanding and apparent symptoms among them. If you have some of these symptoms, you may get allergic pink eyes.

    There are three kinds of pink eye. They are viral conjunctivitis, bacterial conjunctivitis and allergic conjunctivitis. If you have watery, burning, itchy eyes, you may suffer from allergic conjunctivitis. And you may suffer from light sensitivity or stuffiness and a runny nose at the same time. But allergic conjunctivitis is not contagious but it will happen every time you come across allergens. I think maybe you just have this kind of pink eye at this moment because you often suffer from it.

    Red, itchy, watery, and burning eyes are common symptoms of allergic conjunctivitis. You may also wake up in the morning with puffy eyes.
