    Take her to the GP as it can be an infection and you can get some cream to help. My nephew suffered from it really bad, he had a terrible eye infection but was soon cleaned up with the cream :flower:

    isobelle has suffered from 'sticky eye' in her right eye since birth, been to see GP 4x about it, had 2 types of drops and 1 cream but nothing worked. saw paedeatric doc at hospital who says it just because their tear ducts are so immature but by the time they are 1 it should have cleared up. apparently there are no treatments, just keep it clean with cooled boiled water. i have been doing this and it seems 2 be helping.

    HTH..

    My Lo is nearly 11months and has had it since birth he eye gets stuck together when he sleeps :( its been diagnosed as an undeveloped or blocked tear duct I was told if it hadn't corrected itself by the time he's 1 he'd have to have an operation :( looks like that'll be the case...

    I'm the same as others - blocked tear ducts and will need sorted at 1 if not rectified.

    yeah my Lo had this till he was about 5and half months. It was a right pain but didnt seem to bother Lo. Just keep on with the bathing with cool boild water. I say that but my Doc said dont bother with the water having to be boiled x
