puffy eye

lately my 11 month old has been coughing only at night when he is laid down. And yesterday the part of his eye that is a bag on my eye LOL was very puffy. What do you ladies think? Is there anything I can do?

  • Take him to the doctor. This could be many things. It may be as simple as a blocked tear duct or as serious as the beginning of conjunctivitis.

    Good luck!

  • I say this because my baby boy started this last week and then got to daycare and after an hour his eye was swollen and everything... he had conjunctivitis. :( He is better now though. :)
