Question
My 11 month old has a lime green discharge/ pus coming out of his eyes. It looks like it is coming from inside the eye down under the lower lid. Again it is doing this on both eyes.

Brief Answer:
Eyes

Detailed Answer:
Hello. I just read through your question. What you describe could be an infection in the eyes. This is usually not very serious and can be treated with either eye drops or antibiotic eye ointment. These treatments are given by prescription. I recommend consulting with your doctor (not an emergency) to both examine the eyes and prescribe the appropriate treatment plan.
