Hello doctor. My son is 7 mos old and for a week now he has had a partial red eye on the left eye.(meaning the redness starts on the outer layer of the brown eye.) Just about three days ago we noticed a clear film around the colored of the eye. When he wakes up he has crust around his eye And his eye leaks every now And then.

Dear customer,
The red eye associated with crust in the morning is likley to be due to the infecton of the conjunctiva which may be due to the bacterial or viral cause.

The antibiotic eye drop like ciplox, oflox, gentamicicin, chlramphenicol etc may be required to be put in every 3-4 hrs.

The antibiotic eye ointment like chloramphenicol can also be used at night time to control the bacterial infection.

It may take 3-5 days for the complete cure.

You may consult your doctor/ophthalmologist for these prescription drugs.

Thank you
