Post subject: Conjunctivitis?
Hi me again! Ah there's always something wrong with my kids these days
So my little boy has had a cold for a week or so and a day or two ago he started leaking yellow gunky stuff (great description there lol) from his eye....would that be conjunctivitis? Having never had it or known anyone with it I'm obviously not sure...have only read about it.
Have got an appointment with the docs but that's not til Thursday.
I've been cleaning it with cooled boiled water and cotton wool, it only seems to be affecting him at night, his eye gets a little swollen and leaks...
Is there anything I ca treat it with until I go to the docs? Read that chamomile tea can help? A cotton ball dipped in it?
Tanks again for reading

My LO has had conjunctivitis twice and the first time she was only a few months and I used the same method as you. Cool boiled water and bath the eyes regularly.
Oh and don't share towels/flannels/pillow cases etc.. until the conjunctivitis has cleared up x
