You may need to be checked for Strep. One of the viruses that causes conjunctivitis is strep. My husband had pink eye once and I caught it as strep in my throat. So they put us on the same medication.

Good call....Strep was diagnosed tonight by the ER in Boston's Mass Eye & Ear...I'm just worried that it was diagnosed 10 days after I had the symptoms...Oh comes the Augmentin for 10 days
