How can you tell if you have pink eye ? My left eye is killing me , I want to dig it out with a fork!!!!It started yesterday after I got home from working on my truck , only got three hours of sleep last night , it hurts more when the eye is closed . I don't think I got any dirt in it , done that lots of times and it doesn't last this long . My eye is bloodshot and the lids are swollen , both the eye and left side of nose has been running all day . This really sucks!! Tryed eye drops , no good . Any other ideas??? If not I'm going to use the fork!!! Yes I will take picts of that!!!
