Dear lostalicennyc, Thanks for the question. First of all you should realise that pink eye has myriad causes and it is not possible to treat all of them by one general medication. Moreover if wrongly treated your condition might get worse, therfore do not use neosporin or any other medication without consulting an ophthalmologist in person.

it needs eye drops of specific type in the eye for its cure, contact your ophthalmologist to get the specific antibiotic eye drop, neosporin will harm the eye than helping it.
