My little girl is 3 months old and ever since giving birth to her she has had "gunky" eyes. Her eye keeps weeping and is always covered in green gunk. The doctor has told me that its only a blocked tearduct but I have a hard time believing him. Her eye is often red and puffy. I've tried heaps of different ways to ssothe it including breastmilk, saline, cold tea bags and i've nearly gone through a whole tube of medicinal cream that the doctor gave me to try and get id of it. I've stopped the cream cause im not sure if it aggravates it because its not doing anything and I don't want to do any more damage. Has anyone had this problem? Any ideas??
