Pink Eye - What Is It?
Pink eye is an inflammation of the conjunctiva, which is the clear membrane that covers the sclera (the white part of the eye) and lines the inside of the eyelids. The correct name for this eye infection is conjunctivitis, but people call it pink eye because your eye turns pink or red. Though it can be pretty uncomfortable, pink eye won't affect your vision!
Pink Eye - What Causes It?
Pink eye is usually triggered by an allergic reaction, or when you come into contact with a virus or bacteria.
Pink eye can clear up on its own, but it's best to see a doctor and get a prescription for antibiotic eye drops. You should see an improvement after a couple of days of treatment, even though it can take up to two weeks to clear up completely.
Pink Eye - How Can I Prevent It?
Viral and bacterial conjunctivitis are contagious, which means you can get it when you come into direct contact with someone who has pink eye or with something that person has touched, like a towel or tissue. To prevent pink eye and other eye infections, wash your hands frequently, don't touch or rub your eyes, and don't share make-up, eye drops, towels and washcloths.

Pink eye is one of the top reasons why kids miss school.

If you're having issues on KW then you can always report, ignore/delete, and block the person! Also let the moderators/admin know you're having issues!
Same goes with most other places online.
It's also a good idea to tell an adult; you don't deserve to go through this! Whether it be a parent, a friends parent, teacher, principal, counsellor, family member, police officer, any trusted adult!
Unfortunately we here cannot stop what is going on for you, but we can remind you that you can get through this and things will get better. Keep your head up, and stand up for yourself.
Take care. :)
