Brief Answer:
Visit your pediatrician.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Cold and allergies can affect the eyes. It can be viral or bacterial. Pink eye is common in young children. I would suggest you to meet your pediatrician for a detailed examination and treatment.

Meanwhile, teach your child good hand-washing techniques and tell her to avoid rubbing her eyes or face. Do not allow anyone to share towels. This may help in preventing the spread of infection.

I hope this answered your query.
