Does your eye have to pink to have pink eye?

No your eye does not have to be pink or red to have pink eye.

Pink eye is when your eye itches really bad, and when you keep your eye closed for a long period of time, it gets crusted shut (disgusting..). Well theres your answer, hope you don't have pink eye! Its not a fun thing to have, and don't itch it, that will only make it worse! Go to the doctors and they may give you something to treat the itching until the pink eye goes away.it's been proven you cannot give yourself pink eye.
