I sounds like conjunctivitis and you may need an anti biotic from the Doctor , it is catching so make sure others in the family wash hands well after touching him.Get him checked out to see if it is that ..good luck.

Oh yes, good old pink eye.  Call the doctor and be prepared, you will likely get it as well.  We've been lucky to only have this just a couple of times but our pediatrician gives drops for the whole family as it is quite contagious.  good luck----
