Pinkeye (Conjunctivitis)

Pinkeye is an infection or inflammation of the membrane that lines the inside of the eyelids and the whites of the eye. Pinkeye can be contagious as long as there is discharge from the eye. It is often found in school-aged children, with large outbreaks commonly seen in day cares and schools.
