How does a person get pink eye?

Report as

You can get a pink eye if you are allergic to dust or pollen. Irritants like shampoos, bacterial infection, dirt and smoke may as well cause pink eye. Pink eye results from inflammation/irritation of the conjunctiva as well as the interior lining of the eyelids.

Like anything else, cross contamination. If someone with pink eye were to rub their eye and touch something and you touch it after them and then touch your eye chances are your eye would be the next one turning pink and itchy.

Pink eye is caused by fecal matter coming in contact with your eye

Pink eye is very contagious so if someone has it and rubs their eyes then shake your hand and you touch your eyes, you will get it. Anyone who has it needs to be sure to use their own set of towels, wash cloths, pillow cases, etc. Everyone in the household needs to be diligent about good hand washing. If a child has pink eye, they should not be allowed in school until the doctor approves their return.

You can even get pink eye from a prank by farting in someone's pillow. But for the most part it is cross contamination.

Through the contact with an affected person (skin-to-skin contact) or through the use of eyewear used by an affected person.

Keep in mind that pink eye is a bacteria. It can come from anywhere this doesn't just include individuals or things around you. This also includes animals. Though your cat may look like it is suffering from plain "allergies", or has a lot of sleep in their eye be sure to wash your hands after cleaning it or touching any area around that pet (where they slept, where they sit, lay, etc.) because they too can carry pink eye, and you can catch it just the same as if it were from an individual.
