So my baby will be 4 months already on may 9th. Probably since around 4 weeks of age, he has had a running, oozing, goopey left eye. I have had him to my dr many times. Each time prescribing me a antibiotic ointment. Many times a day I find myself wiping his eye. Nothing has been working. I have massaged the area, used warm compresses...everything!!!!
Does anyone have any ideas or advice? I am starting to get annoyed by this.
My nephew had a runny eye for about a year I think (it was quite a long time anyway).. in the end it just went away by itself. You might just have to keep wiping it & let it sort itself out. Sorry I can't be of more help.
When Brayden was born he had a blocked tear duct too. The doctor always told me it would take care of itself so I didn't worry to much about it. You can use a warm wash cloth when you are giving him a bath and slightly massage the duct area to help open it up! Otherwise just give it time!
A friend of mine had to take her baby to the doctor and she had to get her tear ducts opened with a needle or something. I think they had to go up through her nose or something to that effect. She bled a little but it wasn't too bad and it didn't hurt her at all. She has to go back one more time to get one re done. The first option though, was to do what everyone else is saying, massage it! You should talk to your doctor though.
