Pink eye or allergies? Mama Rice 34 kids; North Las Vegas, Nevada 11980 posts

So DS's eye is not red in or outside....but there is still goopy stuff. His last drs appointment they said it may be allergies that was making him congested. He has had a runny nosr (clear not green boogers) and some light sneezing. Could allergies cause that with his eye? Or would you think it is pink eye?

He just woke up so it is the best picture I could get. I have not wiped anything off his eye before this picture.

I would say allergies. My kids have had pink eye without the goopy stuff, and their eyes were severely red and swollen a bit.

If it is allergies then they aren't bad ones. Just seems like the seasonal ones you need to take Claritin or Benadryl for a little while. I have them too. But my eye has never done that.

Mine has occasionally with seasonal allergies. It does it more with a cold, though.

my 4 and a half year old just got over pink eye 3 weeks ago and my 7 month old jsut got over pink eye a week ago. lol. they both had tons of goop that glued their eyes shut in the morning. i had to get a warm rag to unglue their eyelashes then went to the dr and got prescribed ointment to put in their eyes til it finally went away. though our doctor also gave them allergy meds just in case. both were given zyrtec. you might ask a bout that... its hard to tell from this picture but i would guess its just allergies as well.
