I also recommend that you get rid of all eye makeup , also change your pillow case and even beddings ( wash them). Don't share face towel as they will carry the bacteria.
Thank you for the question. You may remain contagious for up to 24 hours after starting antibiotics. Make sure you do not touch the tip of your eye drop bottle to your eye. Place a finger under the eye and pull slightly to make a pocket and look up while placing the drops in your eye. If it is only affecting one eye, be careful to wash hands thoroughly after touching or treating that eye in order to not inadvertently infect the other eye. I would recommend either throwing out or sterilizing any makeup products or eye tools that have recently come in contact with the affected eye(s) that have been used right before and anytime after first experiencing symptoms. For irritation, I recommend using OTC lubricating drops or ointment (not at the same time as antibiotics so they don't get diluted) throughout the day and also placing a clean wet, warm washcloth on the eye to help soothe any pain or itching.
I hope this helps!

You do not have to change your make up though you have to change your contact lens if you were wearing it.
