my friend said babies get pink eye from rubbing their snotty noses and then rubbing their eyes...

Is this true?

  • If that was true little kids would have pink eye all the time in the winter. All we have around my house is runny noses right now and there is no pink eye.

  • think about this. it doesn't make sense. Our snot is already in our noses.

    Conjunctivitis is caused by either a virus or a bacteria.

    If your baby has pink eye, the best thing to do is to put some breastmilk in it.
