My almost 6 month old little guy is having eye junk. When he wakes up they're matted shut (both eyes) and there is a yellow discharge. He also has a cough and snotty nose. I'm pretty sure it's not pink eye as I have a 10 year old who gets that quite a lot and his eyes are not pink or bloodshot but they are really watery.
Do I need to take him to the doctor or is this just a cold that has gotten into his eyes? I hate to go to the doctor for them to tell me it's a virus and there is nothing they can do about it.
