I woke up this morning with bright red blotches around my face. My ears are very itchy as well. Not sure if it's pink eye but I do have redness on one eye from my lashes to my brow.

Dear Anonymous,

It doesn't sound like pink eye https://www.empowher.com/condition/pink-eye/definition

Are you allergic to anything? Did you recently purchase a new pillow/bedding? When you say that your ear and eye are itching the first thing that comes to mind is what you are sleeping on. If it gets worse, please see a doctor, even if it is not your doctor.

Keep us updated,

Thanks Rosa - I'm thinking it's an allergy too. The sheets are a great idea - thinking it could be detergent...
