my 1 year olds eyes are matted shut

My 1 year old started getting nasty goop in her eyes yesterday. More than just the crusty eye gunk you sometimes wake up with. I've been constantly wiping her eyes. Sometimes its white)ish. Sometimes its a lime green type color. Any ideas what it could be or if there's any easy home remedies. If I don't wipe them throughout the night they try to crust closed.
were waiting for our insurance to switch our provider. Right now were covered to see a doc in a different state (recent move) so I'm trying to hold out on a doc visit.

Pink eye and if it is, there is chance of going blind if left untreated

clean it with a warm wash rag and some chamomile tea if you have it.

Sounds like pink eye. Call your old doctor and see if he will call you in a script. I know my doctor I just called when I thought my kids had it. He just called in the eye drops.
