    Default Sore eyes

    My ds2 2.3yo has for the last 2 weeks complained of sore eyes.

    We just moved to WA and initially I thought it was just the hot temperatures & the heat radiating off the footpath back into his face that was bothering him.

    But in the last 3-4 days he's been saying it even when we're indoors.
    He just says 'eyes hurt mummy' and starts to rub them and cry.

    Anyone have any experience with this?
    He doesn't seem to have blurry vision or loss of balance (he is fine walking & not bumping into things).

    He can't tell me if its sore inside the eyes or itchy or what.

    I know it's very random and it could be anything really but thought I'd ask.

    Might be an environmental allergy? My ds2 has the same issue.

    Thanks.

    So what do I do for that? Do I need to get him tested or just give him some claratyne when it occurs?

    He does get bad reactions to mozzie bites so ye I guess it could be an allergy.

    We're not using any different detergents or brands etc of stuff..

    I just use antihistamine eye drops from the chemist, the pharmasist will be able to advise you if you need to see a gp I would think
