  • If it's pink eye - her eye will be complete irritated. My son's always crusted shut when his allergies were particularly bad that day or if he had a cold.

  • pink eye
    need rx from doctor
    a quick visit, no test, just a quick peek from doc, a rx
    drop three times a day for a week
    depends on doctor, but usually doc says can go back to school after one drop or one day (three drops) have heard both things from different doctors
    but as long as they are not in school, might as well be a day
    if they go to school and a school person sees this crust, they will be sent home until a doctor signs a release to return

    daughter had a few weeks ago

    a little crust in corner, not pink eye necessaarily, but crusted shut and crust on eye lashes - 99% chance it is pink eye

  • I think it's conjunctivitis (pink eye).

  • Pink eye is the first thing that comes to mind, if it is not pink eye, then it could be allergies or a cold

  • Sometimes it is just an excess of fluid on a particular night............just the normal fluid from your eye
