And YES, conjunctivitis is highly contagious. Memang sangat senang untuk dijangkiti.First Muqtasaem, then Nadhirah. Next Mr Hubby and now ME!!! we can call our lil family, Red Eye Family, yehaa!
Its hard to avoid not to be infected but here are some tips that can be applied
1. Do not sleep together with infected person.

It goes without saying "Sharing is caring". Not just share the good things, even sakit pun kena share! Hope the Red Eye Family will be back to normal soon. InsyaAllah!
