I have a two year-old who has awful red bloodshot eyes--my husband wants to take him to the doctor, but I am not sure what she could do--he has had a cold now for several days, the eyes are not leaking any fluid and are not crusty, so I don't think it is pink eye. He has been coughing a lot and I thought maybe ruptured a blood vessel-what would doctors do for that? Is there any chance his eye could get infected?View Thread
Turns out that it was just mucus draining through his eyes--we called our doctor and she said if it didn't clear up in a few days to bring him in. Tw days later it is almost all gone and he is feeling much better. The virus he had sure is a nasty one! Stay healthy and thanks for the response!View Thread
