The 11-month-old Baby Comes Out Green And Sticky?
good night, my baby is 11 months old. when he woke up in the morning his eyes pulled a sticky green and sticky in his eyes. recently he had a cold and cough, does this have something to do with it? and what treatment should I give so that her eyes don’t turn green again? thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Previously I want to confirm in advance, whether the green and sticky peel is accompanied by symptoms of red eye in children?
At the upper and lower end of the middle part of the human eye (near the nose), there is a channel that connects the eye to the nasal cavity. This channel serves to remove excess production of tears into the nose. Therefore if you pay attention, when you cry, your nose will also get wet and ooze. When a child has a cold, the nasal mucosa can swell and the duct can get blocked. Blockage in the tear duct can cause the eyes to be continuously runny and produce more eye discharge. If the child's eyes don't look red, this is likely to happen to your child. The occurrence of these tear duct obstruction will improve itself when a child's cold improves. You can help get rid of the blockage by cleaning the eye dirt as often as possible, as well as compressing the tip of the eye with a warm compress and doing gentle massage on the tip of the eye.
If the child's eyes look reddish too, it is also necessary to suspect an infection in the child's eyes. In this case, you should take your child to the eye doctor so that the cause can be further evaluated. Meanwhile, do not let the child rub his eyes and wash the child's hands immediately when the child touches his eyes. Do not give any eye drops to children before consulting directly with their doctor.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
