Is It Natural For A 1-year-old To Catch A Cold And Have Watery Eyes?
Hello., My child is 1.5 years old, he has the flu and has watery eyes? Is that reasonable or does he need a doctor?
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Watery or itchy eyes can occur when a person is having a cold or a cold. Something similar and resentful such as runny nose or runny nose when crying is also often the case. This is caused because normally there is a channel that connects the eye to the nose which in medical language is called the nasolacrimal duct or which is the tear duct from the eye to the nose. So when a cold or flu occurs it is not uncommon for watery eyes, especially in children, this is related to the channel size which is still relatively shorter compared to adults.
In the meantime, things to do include:
Avoid dust, pollution and cigarette smoke
Avoid using blankets, clothes and furry dolls
Maintain personal and environmental hygiene
Avoid the air is too cold
Don't rub your eyes
If the complaint does not improve it's good you can take your child to a pediatrician to be examined directly and get treatment in accordance with the conditions that occur in your child.
So much information from me, hopefully it helps
