Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX. Welcome to HCM.Thanks for writing in to us with your health concerns. The change in colour of the eyes with itching indicates that your son might be suffering from conjunctivitis. Is there any associated watering from the eyes? I will advise you to visit a paediatrician for proper evaluation and treatment. Please don't rely on home remedies and make an appointment tomorrow. If you use XXXXXXX in your son eyes then please avoid it . Regards Dr Manisha Jain.
