2 years old having yellow discharge from eyes and green discharge from nose. Is this pollen allergy ?

My 2 year old daughter is having yellowish/green discharge coming out of her eyes. Also, she has had some green discharge coming out of her nose when it is running. We live in NC, and the pollen is out of control during this time. Could this just be allergies, or something more severe. Please advise. Thank You, Anne (Emma s Mom)

Good Day
There appears to be a bacterial infection of her nose which has probably spread up to the canal connecting her outer surface of her eye to the nose. It needs to be looked at by the ENT/Ophthalmologist Doctor.
