My LO has had a blocked tear duct since he was born. He is 6 months now. He has had 4 episodes of conjunctivits in 3 months, regardless of how many times we have cleaned his eye. I have been cleaning them every 2 hours and gunk still comes out of them plus the water in his eye just keeps overflowing and running down the side of his face.
His doctor has mentioned that if he does not grow out of this ( which he said he should have by now ) he will be refering us to the hospital to have an operation. I believe they probe it and open the tear duct to get the tears flowing etc???
We have tired everything to help out LO. A special massage to try and get it flowing, drops, creams, warm salty water.. NOTHING is working. At the moment he has an infection in his eye so we have been very careful and cleaning his eye alot.
Has anyone's bub had the operation? If so what happens?
And if you didnt have the op did it clear up?
Does anyone have any advice? Im at a loss ..
