Q:
What are the symptoms of pink eye in its beginning stage?

A:
Pink eye, also known as conjunctivitis, is a kind of inflammation or infection on the transparent membrane (conjunctiva) that covers the white part of your eyeball and lines your eyelid. Since the small blood vessels in the conjunctiva are inflamed, they’re more visible. Then your eyes appear to be pink or reddish.

Pink eye is usually caused by allergic reaction or bacterial or viral infection. In its beginning stage, your eyes may have such symptoms:

  • Redness
  • Tearing
  • Itching
  • A little gritty feeling
