Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

It is true that children during their first year in contact with other children get sick more frequently and this helps their immunity increase.

About his current symptoms, I will suggest to clean the eye with warm nap with chamomile water and avoid touching with hands.

Give your child a healthy diet with a lot of fruits and some vitamins to help him to get better.

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