What are the symptoms of pink eye?

Hello. I got diagnosed this morning at the doctor with possible pneumonia (28 year old female bad chest cold last two weeks). I just got prescribed Augmentin and took first dose and took nap. Just woke up and my eyes are red and are pouring this sticky white/yellow paste looks like elmers glue. I tried some allergy eye drops but do I need to go up to urgent care? Is this pink eye????

I was diagnosed with bacterial pink eye Monday (symptoms started Sunday). The swelling seems to have gotten worse, with more tearing. My cheek, under my eye and next to my ear are all swollen. Is this something I should worry about, or just part of the healing process? (I m taking Yigamox every three hours).

My 4 month old litt;e baby boy has an eye infection since birth. He has a green discharge from the eye and constant watering of the eye which is making the skin ont he side of his face very red and sore. He has had two courses of eye drops (antibiotics) which made no difference at all. Lately I noticed that the second eye is becoming infected. I am currently just washing it with sterile water and cotten wool as I have been from birth but still no improvement. Should I see the dr again?
