My 4 year old son's eyes are red and swollen. It started 9 days ago. He also has a stuffy, runny, sneezy nose. I took him to the doctor for his well baby appt. and the dr. said that he had pink eye. I have been putting prescribed eye drops for 7 days. He told me 5 but it didn't clear it up. He was also prescribed Zyrtec. My son looks and feels just as bad as he did 7 days ago. His eyes seem better then he rubs one and it waters and runs. Do I need to take him back to the doctor?
