anyone's LO ever have pink eye?

Trying to decide if that is what's going on with DS. Had a slight fever this morning, tearing eye all day and the eye is red in the corner and irritated. He also has runny nose and cough which could be the underlying cause of the tears. Coughed so hard at dinner that he couldn't keep his grilled cheese down :( Poor little guy.

These might all be cold symptoms but the one eye is more troublesome that the other.

    That doesn't sound like pink eye.  DS's eye was red and goopy.  He kept rubbing his eyes and the goop would dry and get crusty.  It was all in his eye lashes and was just gross looking.  He also never ran a fever with it.  With the other symptoms you are suggesting, sounds like a cold that might be making his eyes itch...or maybe seasonal allergies???

    Is there anything oozing from the eye?  Does it seem to bother him?  When DS had pinkeye, there was no doubt.  It was just red and oozy and DS kept rubbing it. GL!  I hope your DS feels better soon!

    what is the consistency of the leakage? goopy is a bad sign. also look for crusty upon waking. i wouldn't worry if it's just a thin clear fluid, but if it's causing the eyelashes to stick together then that's a sure sign.

    DS did and there was no doubt about it! It started with his eyes just tearing up (one was always worse than the other), then it started to get goopy and red. Then when he woke up his eyes were crusty and really nasty. In the mornings they were literally STUCK together! I had to use a warm rag to get them ustuck. The doctor gave us drops and his eyes started to get better over night.

    We dealt with pink eye this week :(

    When she'd wake up in the morning her eyelid was very swollen and red. So much sticky goop that her eyelashes were crusted together, and underneath her eye was red and a little puffy. No other symptoms of cough or fever though.
