Gunky eye won't go away

DS had a slight cold in Sept. it went away and left him with a gunky eye, Dr told me to just clean it and it should go away. I take him back because it didn't go away, Dr. gave eye drops. While on the eye drops the eye got better and as soon as he was off it came back. Took him back to the Dr. he had an ear infection. While on the meds for the ear infection the gunky eye went away, after getting off the ear infection meds the gunky eye has come back! It's not as bad, but it's back.He has a 12 month well visit on the 27th, but I want to know if it could be anything else so I could bring it up to the Dr.

  • Might be a clogged duct. They come and go but eventually clear up. If not, they have a procedure that can be done to clear it. Have your doc look again at the well baby check.

  • try some breastmilk in the eye. It is amazing antibacterial properties and should take care of it.
