My grandson lives with us. Along with my son and his mother. He was at the doctor yesterday. He was told he has pink eye. He redieved eye drops. His parents were told not to go to work yesterday. This morning his mothers eye was crusted shut. My right eye has a strange tinging feeling on the outside edge. We dont know what to do. Any ideas?

Pink eye is quite a contagious disease, and it is not unusual for many family members to be infected at one time

Avoid using each others towels, liberally use hand sanitizers, and wear spectacles (zero number if needed) to avoid touching the infected eye repeatedly,
