My 20 month old has had a runny nose (clear snot) and a cough for 2 days. This morning he woke up with his eyes crusted shut. Used a warm washcloth to get the gunk out. Should I take him to the doctors? If so today is Sunday...can I wait another day or take him to the er?

Does he have a fever? Is he eating and drinking okay? Is the eye "gunk" building up again? If not, I don't think a trip to the ER is necessary.

But I would probably keep a close eye on him and call the doctor first thing tomorrow to see what they say.

I decided to take him in incase he had pink eye...wanted to get the meds going if needed. Better safe than sorry. He ended up having viral pink eye Wich is much more contagious than bacterial. Really hoping and praying it doesn’t spread through the house. Thanks for your comments
