Curejoy Expert Dr.Janardhana Hebbar Explains:

A typical viral conjunctivitis begins in one eye and spreads to the other eye within a week. It usually takes approximately 5 to 10 days to resolve.

Common pink eye symptoms can last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. Bacterial conjunctivitis usually requires treatment with antibiotics and even with that treatment, it can last up to a month or longer. Allergic conjunctivitis, however typically lasts throughout the allergy season and not likely to go away on its own unless you remove or avoid the cause of the reaction; but it can be managed with allergy medications.
