My dear,
Thanks for sending your query to us.
Pink eye will have redness all over the eye and may be sparing area around black of the eye.There may or may not be stickiness of eye in the morning.
Stye will be a localized swelling on the lid margin and in the initial stages if you roll you finger on the lid margin it will be painful at one point.
