Is it necessary to throw away make up after pink eye is cleared up?

yes. the virus strain was in your system before the pink eye showed, so there is a good chance it is in your make-up, too. Especially is you used the eye make-up while you had pink-eye.

It has been strongly recommended to me to get rid of my eye makeup and any eye creams that I used within the couple of days prior to the red eye symptoms of pinkeye. It would not matter if it was viral or bacterial...if it touched your eye, the item is contaminated, lid liners, mascaras, even eyeshadows and coverup (if you use it for any bags under eyes like I do). Also any lash curlers should be sterilized or thrown out.

Both viral and bacterial conjunctivitis (pinkeye) are very, very contagious and spread quickly.

I would.
Mascaras aren't that desirable. they only last three to six month anyhow

Eyeshadows are a bit different. And it would be limited what you would have used during the course of this.

I would discard all eye products that you used in the 2-3 days before your symptoms began.

Victoria O
yes i would get rid of it.

UGA go dawgs
yes you will get it again so throw it away or not thats your choice but i would

Depending on what type of pink eye you contracted! Allergic conjunctivitis is due to airborne allergens and is not contagious. I
f you have conjunctivitis also known as pink eye that is a bacterial infection or viral infection... then yes throw away your makeup to avoid re infecting your eyes again.
Also make sure you wash your pillow case and anything that has come in to contact with your eye. Throw out any makeup or products that have come into contact with your eyes as well.
If you are not sure what type of conjunctivitis (pink eye) you have contracted then it is better to be safe rather then sorry and throw out your makeup.

I know that using someone else's mascara is a big no-no in terms of developing infections (germs are all over the mascara wand), so I would recommend throwing away anything that you used near your eyes while you had pink eye.

Yes. The contacts become contaminated and after your infection has cleared up, you can reinfect yourself. Probably a good idea to throw the lenses AND the case away...just to be sure. You should also discard any eye make-up because you could have contaminated the make-up and the applicator.

jamie k
yes, in order not to reinfect yourself it is necessary to discard all eymakeup and or contacts that where used during or before you knew you had pink eye.
