In brief: Antihistamine

Although discharge from allergies is usually clear/watery, there can be some yellow/thicker appearance to it.
Both eyes is more suggestive of allergy than infection. Consider over the counter antihistamine like zyrtec or Claritin (loratadine) for children. If it worsens, or the lids are matted together then an antibiotic drop may be needed. If the allergies cont. To bother, antihistamine drops can be rx'd.
