of the outermost layer of the white part of the eye and
the inner surface of the eyelid. It makes the eye appear
pink or reddish. There may also be pain, burning,
scratchiness, or itchiness. The affected eye may have
increased tears or be “stuck shut” in the morning.
Swelling of the white part of the eye may also occur.
Itching of the eye is more common in cases due to
allergies. Conjunctivitis can affect one or both eyes.
The most common infectious causes are viral followed
by bacterial. The viral infection may occur along with

cases are easily spread between people. Allergies
