Problem: two year old male toddler has eye pain, used to only happen in the morning (without crusting). Now it happens during the night also. But mainly in the morning. No redness. This was occurring for the past two weeks but today his eyes appear smaller as though they are not opened all the way. I am not sure if the surrounding area isn't swollen. His eyes have been constantly watering for the past two days.
Now his nose is running constantly. He also has a mucus filled cough. He does have reactive airway disease (asthma) but his eyes are his major complaint. They interrupt his normal activities and the only way to relieve his anxiety is by placing a cool wet washcloth over his eyes. I read other blogs about eye pain and I didn't see where there was any solution.
