Practice good hygiene to control the spread of pink eye.

For instance:

Don’t touch your eyes with your hands.

Wash your hands often.

Use only clean towels and washcloths.

Don’t share towels or washcloths.

Change your pillowcases often.

Avoid swimming in a swimming pool.

Throw away your eye cosmetics, such as mascara.

Don’t share eye cosmetics or personal eye care items.

Use any antibiotics for the complete period prescribed.

Pink eye symptoms may resolve in three to seven days.
Children with viral conjunctivitis may be contagious for a week or more.

Children may return to school when the redness and discharge in their eyes subsides.
