Thanks for your query
Your child is having conjunctivitis which could be allergic or infective in nature.
He needs to be examined by doctor .
In the meantime i suggest you to take care of eyes,clean them with cotton soaked in sterilized water from inside out.
He needs topical eye medication .
Wishing your child good health.
God bless.
