See Pediatrician: It's best to have your pediatrician take a look at it. The discharge may need to be swabbed and sent for culture as at 5 weeks it is still possible to have a conjunctivitis from his trip through the birth canal. The other likely diagnosis is a plugged/blocked tear duct (dacryostenosis) which your pediatrician will be able to help guide you on how to care for that condition. ...Read more

Nasociliary nerve: The varicella zoster virus (chickenpox) can reactivate simultaneously in the eye and the tip of the nose. Known as hutchinson's sign, the common pathway is the nasociliary nerve. This is theoretically possible with herpes simplex virus (fever blisters), but that virus usually affects the lips, the eyes and the genitals.See an ophthalmologist asap to prevent complications of inflammation. ...Read more

Infection: of the eyelid or glands is most likely. You should wash the lashes thoroughly with 1/4 strength baby shampoo whenever the crust forms (at least daily) and apply warm compresses at least 4x daily. If it doesn't get better with this approach, you will need to see a clinic to get some antibiotic ointment. ...Read more

Allergirs: Sounds like you have developed allergies. It is also possible that simple irritation from dust and sun exposure could be causing your problem. I would suggest wearing eye protection when you run, and using cool water to rinse your face, and gently wash off your eyelashes afterwards. Your headache could be a symptom of sinus congestion, also allergic. ...Read more

Scleral icterus: Whites of eyes aren't always white in everyone. Scleral icterus is yellowing of whites of eyes and can be a sign of liver problems, especially if you notice jaundice (yellow-tinged skin), cola-colored urine and/or clay-colored stool. Good idea to discuss concerns w/your Family Doc especially if you have 2 or more of above, or change from baseline. ...Read more
