  • It may just be a tear duct that hasn't opened up yet. I would wait until Monday unless it gets a whole lot worse. If it's matting up, wipe it now and then with a soft cloth wet with warm water. Just keep it clean and try not to worry. It's a pretty common thing that happens.

  • I agree - probably a clogged tear duct. 3 of my 5 kid had them. My dr told me to wipe it with a warm wet cloth from the outside of the eye in towards the corner.
