What causes eye discharge in baby?

my baby girl is now 3 months old and she cant open her right eye completely say only 30 percent is open and there is some discharge from her eye as well i am worried whether she is having eye duct problem or she is having one small eye i have consulted a doctor she gave her eye drops but its been 15 days and still she is unable to open the eye but the discharge is less now.

Hi,

It is better to see an eye specialist to rule out infection in the eyes. Sometimes, obstruction in the naso lacrimal duct can cause the problem. You can do massaging under the eyes (not over eye balls). It will relieve the obstruction.

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

Regards,
Dr. Rajmohan, Pediatrician
