What Does It Mean When The Babys Eyes Is Watery
My LO is 8 mo. 20 lbs. I gave her infant Tylenol (acetaminophen). She has a thick runny nose and watery eyes (allergies) can I also give her children's benadryl?
Benedryl indication: Although the manufacturer does not indicate it's use in children under 2 years of age, it is not uncommon for it to be recommended 'off label' by pediatricians. Oral cetrizine is another antihistamine for allergies which does have a documented age indication for 6 months and up. Both of these medications can be safely administered with Tylenol (acetaminophen). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can't say, but..: The top thing that comes to my mind is allergy/sinus issues. Any time your throat feels tight, your breathing is potentially compromised (obviously not a good thing!). I would recommend you to get this checked out at your earliest convenience, and in the meantime you may want to try some drugstore allergy/decongestant meds to see if that helps. ...Read more

What at-home techniques relieve epiphora in a newborn baby? My six-week-old has watery eyes all the time, even when she is not crying. Her doctor called this epiphora. Is there anything i can do at home to help this go away?
Epiphora : Epiphora (poor tear drainage) in the newborn period is extremely common - 2-4% of all newborns will have it. It is usually due to an obstruction of the tear duct (newborn tear ducts are tiny!) and 95% of all cases get better on their own by the time the child is 1 years old. Two things that can help are for you to gently massage the tear ducts (inner eye corners) periodically and to use a clean wet washcloth to wipe away any occasional crusting from the tear buildup. Other than that, you will just have to wait until your child grows out of it. If your child is in the 5% that do not improve by 1 year, then your child's doctor will recommend an ophthalmologist (eye specialist) who can do a simple procedure to open the ducts. If the eye becomes red, swollen, or develops green drainage, call your child's doctor since it may be infected. ...Read more
