No problem, thank you. I am new so still learning. I am definitely a read MD and we don't determine the pricing, but I leave the flood to the other expert :)

I am sorry i do not know whats going on. OK let me address your question.

Pink eye is usually due to viral infection that does not need any antibiotic and is self healing disease. You can use polysporin as it can help in case it is caused by bacteria and would prevent secondary bacterial infection.

Hope this helps.
