Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Consumption of inappropriate formula milk can indeed cause the baby to experience health problems, including digestive disorders (such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, colic) or other organ system disorders, such as skin rashes, itching, swelling, redness, shortness of breath, and so. This condition very rarely causes the increased production of eye secretions that your child is currently experiencing.
Often times, excessive production of eye secretions in infants occurs due to blockage of the duct that connects the tear glands to the nasal cavity, also known as the nasolacrimal duct. This blockage can appear from birth, or it can only appear when the child is older. This condition is generally mild and harmless, although it can cause quite disturbing complaints, not only tingling, but also red eyes, itching, sore, watery, sticky, and so on.
Not only is the nasolacrimal duct clogged, there may also be an increased production of eye secretions as happened in your child due to other factors, such as irritation, allergies, or infection of the eye. This condition can also be indirectly related to a child's immune system that is not good due to not getting enough milk (breast milk). As is well known, no matter how good formula milk is, it cannot match the quality of breast milk which contains many good components to increase the child's immune system.
Our advice, you first try to do the following suggestions so that your child's complaints improve:
Clean the eye secretions that come out using a clean tissue that does not contain perfume or dye, you can also wet the tissue with clean, warm water. Avoid touching the child's eyes with hands directly (especially without washing hands first) Protect the child's eyes from getting into the dust , or other harmful substances Perform gentle massage using the thumb and forefinger starting from the inner corner of the eye toward the nostrils, repeat several times to open the blocked nasolacrimal duct Try to relactate (breastfeed again) Do not give eye drops or ointments carelessly in children without a doctor's prescription If with the steps above, your child's condition still doesn't get better in 1 to 3 days, don't delay to get him checked directly to a doctor or pediatrician so that he gets the best treatment.
I hope this helps.
