Post subject: Sticky Eye
Poppy has one sticky gunky eye. We are using the cooled boiled water / fresh cotton wool method and wiping away whenever she is awake but as it is just so weepy this can be every few minutes until it weeps some more. When she wakes up she has the biggest eye bogies and dried green gunk all over. She isn't bothered... but...
Am I over cleaning? Are there any suggestions if there is anything else I could be doing to help?

Thanks ladies... we are bottle fed here; however she has been to the drs (we all have the sickness and diarrhea and we were worried how poorly she was getting) so OH asked at the same time and have been given some eye drops for possible conjunctivitis. I always thought that conjunctivitis was something you caught so I don;t know where she has got it from!
