Baby Has Watery Eyes And Runny Nose
Sounds like a cold: This is pretty typical as the early signs of a URI in an infant. As long as they stay on their regular pattern of activities including feeding & rest, this can be monitored.

This is a symptomatic disorder of the nose characterized by inflamed nasal mucosa. Groupings of rhinitis exist triggered by infection, allergy, non-allergic triggers/exposure, meds, immune disorder, and/or structural problems in the nose. Symptoms can include itching, sneezing, congestion, watery/mucoid drainage, post-nasal drainage with sore throat, ear ...Read more
Seldom needed: Although used for decades these meds have not been shown to shorten an illness & may increase the thickness of secretions making it harder to cough them out. Many kids felt a little more would help them & self medicated & ended up in emergency rooms. The aap & other groups discourage their use under 6. I have mixed feelings. Saline nasal wash is preferable for younger kids. ...Read more
My son is 9 months old. I think he has some seasional allergies. He is sneezing a lot, red watery eyes, and runny nose and all discharge is clear?
Don't assume allergy: If I blow pepper in your face, you sneeze & drain the same as those with allergy. I find babies have more congestion with scented cleaning products, perfume, smoke & other irritants than they do with animal dander or pollens. The tiny nasal passages that become very noisy with a little mucous or swelling gives many the wrong idea. Thease are not little copies of adult problems, their issues differ. ...Read more

Allergies?: Have you been checked for allergies? I would try 2 weeks of claritin (loratadine) (loratidine) or allegra (fexofenadine) OTC to see if that helps.

I suddently got ill on Saturday runny nose watery eyes extra hear loss gone. How to stop runny nose, watery eyes and get extra hearing again as usual?
OTC meds: Your symptoms are most likely due to a viral upper respiratory illness or allergies. In either event, I advise taking an over the counter antihistamine like zyrtec at night x 14 days, a decongestant like sudafed 2 x daily x 10 days, and afrin nasal spray 2 x daily x 3 days only. If your symptoms do not improve after another 10 days, you should see your doctor, or sooner if your symptoms get wors ...Read more

Not so fast...: Runny nose is often caused by the tears from the watery eyes draining into it. The cause of the watery eyes has to be treated. If it is due to allergies, then an allergy eye drop is the best treatment. If you have dry eyes, they can cause reflex tearing. An artificial tear can heal the eye surface, decreasing tearing. A doctor can help find the cause. ...Read more

My 2 year old granddaughter has a fever along with watery eyes and a runny nose. What should I give her?
Give love and soup!: You don't actually need to give her anything. If her fever is under 104 and she is drinking ok and not complaining of pain, it is really better to let her run the fever to help fight her infection. With the runny nose, there are not alot of great helpful meds for a 2 y/o. As helpful is humidity, fluids (good ole chicken soup) and the cuddle of someone to let her know you are there for her. ...Read more

Allergic reactions include runny nose and watery eyes. Can antihistamine drugs help prevent or decrease the effects of an allergic reaction?
Tears out of proportion. Eyes need tear film to keep the cornea clear of any local or environmental foreign materials. The tears are produced by local as well as accessory lacrimal glands and are constantly being replaced by evaporation or suction by the nasolacrimal system into the nose. Watery eyes can result from many causes, some of which being too much production ...Read more
