    Yes, the pink eyes can be spread out by the direct touch or watching between the eyes. So you should not spread it out to your family members. First of all, you should not go out often. Secondly, you should use your towel and things, not mixing with your family members. Last of all, keep on using the eyedrops to release the symptom. In a word, have a good rest and keep distance with other people.
