Sorry for the gross title:) My son has a bad cold and cough and the last three mornings he has woke up with dried green snot on his eyelashes, almost glued shut. Almost like when you have pink eye, but it's not pink eye. I've had to hold a warm wash cloth to his eyes and try to get these huge eye crusts off. Then he's got more throughout the day after each nap. It's driving me nuts (and he hates when I have to use the cloth to get them off).
Is this common or should I call the doc? I'm also not sure and just curious...does this eye nastiness come about because he's rubbing his snotty nose then rubbing his eyes, or, does the snot come out of his eyes somehow (baby sinuses not fully developed like an adult or something?)
