My wife has been getting pinkeye over the past couple of months.\n\nThe doctor gave her ointment and told her to stop using makeup. The\npinkeye went away after a few days. She started again with brand new\neye makeup and the pink eye returned. The doctor told her to wash her\neyes only with cotton pads and not the usual wash cloth.\n\nThis last time, she was not using any eye makeup for a month and was\nfine, She put on new, brand name, hypo allergenic makeup and the next\nmorning pinkeye.\n\nShe'll see the doctor tomorrow, but he seems to be at a loss.\nBTW, she hasn't been wearing contacts all this time and no new\nshampoos, soaps or anything else. Somebody else suggested she ask to\nbe referred to a eye specialist.\n\nAny help? Thanks in advance.
