Gooey eye [Shelly&Dexter&Felix] 2 kids; 1 angel baby; London, United Kingdom 5376 posts

Dexters left eye has been continuously leaking bright green snot like goo from his right eye for about 3days. Doesn't seem to be getting by worse or any better. I'm not sure what to do other than clean it for him. Cause if i leave it he's eye gets stuck shut. Lol. I know it could be conjunctivitis as I had it a few time when I was younger. But I didn't really do much for it that I can remember. Should I get him to the docs or wait a couple days. It doesn't seem to bother him he's just gooey. Lol. X

Clean with saline solution and go the docs and see if he can give you.something because if it is conjunctivitus.it can spread to the other eye. X

Clean it with saline solution, shouldn't need a script for it from a chemist. Your doctor may prescribe anti-biotics for it too - I can't remember properly though, it's been a while since my daughter has had it .

Saline solution if it doesn't clear up go to a doctor and they sill prescribe anti b's.

Generally green or yellow is an infection and is would take him to the docs.



If you breastfeed use some breast milk

Sounds like it could be a blocked tear duct. DD had that and it cleared up with some breast milk to the eye.

Managed to get him into see the doc. She said its conjunctivitis and gave me some drops to give him 5times a day for a week. And to go back if it don't work.



I'd do the break milk trick if I breastfed. :)

Yeah breast milk is amazing stuff lol. I have used to to heal cuts, eye infections, even diaper rash. The drops should work just fine though. Hope he gets better I know that gooey eye thing is nasty I had to deal with it and my poor DD couldn't even open her eye.
