Hey all.


I am not too on the "up and up" when it coems to sicknesses and all, and I just have a quick question.


Is it common to get pink eye right after having the flu?

The viruses that cause pink eye are the same ones that cause a runny nose, cough, post-nasal drip and, occasionally diarrhea. The bacteria that cause pink eye is the same as those that cause ear infections. As long as there are people running around with stuffed-up noses and scratchy throats, there will be others who happen to get pink eye from it.
