Hi,

Cough and eye discharge are due to infection due to bacteria. During the end stage, the mucus will become thick. No need to worry. The child will improve soon. If eye discharge is more, consult an eye specialist.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Rajmohan, Pediatrician
