Viral pink eye in babies
Herpes simplex virus acquired from the birth canal or from cold sores can also cause pink eye. This often starts in both eyes then can clear up and return in just one eye, sometimes with blisters of the skin near the eye. Herpes infections in infants can become very severe and may even require hospitalization.
Most commonly, the same types of viruses that cause colds in young children also cause viral pink eye. A virus produces a more watery eye discharge compared to bacterial pink eye.
