Hi, Yes conjunctivitis is communicable. It is advisable that you do not touch your normal eye after touching infected eye, else you'll spread it to other eye as well.  Please wipe the tears and discharge from your eye using tissue paper and discard it after use. Also seperate your towel, so that you don't spread infection to others in family.
