I believe I have pink eye both eyes have a small amount of discharge that is causing crusties in the corners though out the day when I wake from sleeping the crusties are all around the eye area but the eyes are not glued shut both eyes ache a lot of the time especially the left eye. They both also itch occassionally but not constantly. both eyes are only slightly pink and they are both swollen. My boyfriend thinks its not pink eye cause my eyes are not very red. I am trying to find out if I actually have pink eye and if so is it more likely the viral or the bacterial. I do not have any health insurance and can not afford to see a doctor please helpView Thread
