  • Sounds like a sinus infection or some other infection around his eyes. Time for a doctor's visit.

  • I'd say an eye infection. My lovely little kiddos have given 3 of them to me over the years (even when they only showed a very mild case of it). lol! If it's to the point where when he wakes up and his eyelashes are caked in it, I'd say go to the dr. There's not much they can do honestly, but I guess it's better safe than sorry. It could be pink eye and I believe they have drops for that. When I had mine (the first time I got it in both eyes the day I got married... ugh, it was horrible!) the dr told me to hold warm wash clothes on them and just wipe them clean. I also used some allergy drops to help with the eye irritation when it was bad. Make sure you wash your hands after everytime you touch the area, or you too will catch it!

  • Also, the nose drainage is from the eyes, most likely. You know how if you cry, your nose gets all stuffy? Well, your tear ducts drain right into your nose... gross, huh!
