Conjunctivitis refers to inflammation of the clear lining of the eye and inside of the eyelids. It can be caused by a virus, bacterium, fungus, injury or allergies. When caused by a virus or bacteria, conjunctivitis is incredibly contagious. This is not necessarily due to the condition itself, rather the tendency for people to touch their eyes periodically throughout the day and then come into contact with other people.
