How long is conjunctivitis contagious?
2 years ago
If conjunctivitis is due to a bacterial infection, it is contagious until the eyes are no longer red and there is no discharge (this may be after several days without treatment, or about 24 hours after starting effective treatment.) If the conjunctivitis is due to a viral infection, it may take several days before the eyes are clear, and the person is infectious until the eyes are back to normal.
