Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

Your child seems having conjunctivitis mostly due to a virus or bacteria.

Usually in the initial stage of conjunctivitis, the eyes become red due to the congestion resulted from the inflammation of the conjunctiva.

Followed by this there may be watering, purulent discharge, and sticking of eye lashes after waking from sleep.

Antibiotic eye drops are required to treat this infection.

Therefore I advise you to consult his doctor for the examination of the eyes and prescription of medication.

And as this eye infection is contagious, take precautions to prevent the spread of infection to the other family members and peers.

Hope I have answered your query, if you have any clarification please let me know.
