    Yes, pink eye is very common and is extremely contagious. Avoid touching eyes with your hands, wash hands frequently, do not share towels, and avoid work, school or daycare activities for a least five days or as long as discharge is present.

    yup,pink eye caused by a virus or bacteria is very contagious and spreads easily and quickly from person to person. Pink eye that is caused by allergens or irritants is not contagious, but it is possible to develop a secondary infection caused by a virus or bacteria that is contagious. By following some simple self-care steps, like washing your hands and not touching your eyes, you can reduce the risk of getting or spreading pink eye

    Yes it is contagious. Pink eye is an infection of the part of the eye called the conjunctiva,conjunctivitis can hit one or both eyes, and bring with it the telltale symptoms ranging from redness and itching to downright pain, as with most maladies,bacteria,viruses or allergies are the cause. The trouble is how contagious pink is. If it hits one person in the family,it's likely to make its rounds to all family members.
