Hi, my almost 5 year old has pinkeye. It's not a serious case although I suppose it could get worse, but right now it seems pretty mild. Since most pinkeye are viral and not bacterial, I've decided not to take him to the Dr. immediately and just treat at home with breastmilk. My question is, how long is pinkeye contagious? Once the symptoms are gone, does that mean it's not contagious anymore?
