Pinkeye is an infection or inflammation of the membrane that lines the inside of the eyelids and the whites of the eye. Common symptoms of pinkeye include: red or pink discoloration, frequent drainage or discharge, and itching or irritation of one or both eyes. 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.
