My son's eye is pink, puffy and irritated. Could he have pink eye (conjunctivits)?

Yes, it could be pink eye and as others suggested take him to his doctor, mainly because it can spread to the other eye and it's HIGHLy contagious. It's also painful, so get him some relief fast.

God bless

If it lasts more than a few hours it's probably something more serious than allergies, like pink eye.

yes it is possible. you should go to a doctor and have him checkec out.

yes you need to get medicine so it gets better.

My daughter had pink eye and his symptoms sound just like hers did and she said when she would blink it felt like something was in there poking her..Pink eye can cause alot of problems including blindness so I would take him to see a doctor as soon as I could..They gave my daughter drops to go in her eye and a ointment to go on it..Good luck and I hope all goes well...Becki

impossible to guess, take him to see your GP

im not a professional but he may have conjunctivitis web md or yahoo health may have more info good luck hope he feels better.

it could be possible those are the symptoms of having the pink eye you should take him to the nearest clinic asap so that no one else will get it and his symptoms won't get any worse.

I'm sure. . . I just got over it. The most obvious sign of pink eye is the eye(s) being almost glued shut in the morning. I went in and they just took a quick look, and prescribed eye drops.

There is also an over the counter pink eye medication now. I did not try it however because of my contacts (which I had to get rid of anyways and wear my glasses for a week). I just put my new contacts in today!!

It is also contageous. So, I would wash his pillow, etc. Also, make sure he washes his hands quite often, especially after tougching his eye(s).


just me
Yes, does he have any yellow crust or pus around the eye? It is very contagious and must be seen by a doctor. Don't rub your eyes or you may get it too.

Probably, call his pediatrician, most will just call drops into a pharmacy for you so you don't have to go to the office for a visit.

Yes, but there are three different causes for conjunctivitis, it could be viral, allergic or bacterial.
Bacterial, needs to be treated with an antibiotic, the other two can be cleared up without the use of medication, try placing a teabag of chamomile over the infected eye, make sure it has cooled so as not to scald. Use this treatment 3 to 4 times a day until it clears.

i don't know-but i suggest you take him to a doctor, rather thank ask complete strangers on yahoo.

That might be a possibilty, especially if that is going around in his classroom or if he has been around someone who is infected. Also it could be allergies, the pollen. Have him wash his was really well after coming from outside. Or it could be an eyelash.

could be. H eshould see the doctor. My son's doctor told me he didn't want to prescribe anything for the conjuctivitis unless his eye was weepy (with pus). He said that it would clear up on it's own otherwise.

Definitely! Keep him home for 3 days. No need to see a doctor, this'll go away on its own, a simple little infection.

It is impossible to diagnose a conditon without more information. Suggest a trip to the pediatrician.

Could also be an allergy from pollen. But see a doctor.

signs of pink eye:

eye pain,
redness, and
a moderate to large amount of discharge, usually yellow or greenish in color.

Pinkeye is very common. It usually is not serious and goes away in 7 to 10 days without medical treatment.

Common symptoms of pinkeye are:

Eye redness (hyperemia).
Swollen, red eyelids.
More tearing than usual.
Feeling as if something is in the eye (foreign-body sensation or keratoconjunctivitis).
An itching or burning feeling.
Mild sensitivity to light (photophobia).
Drainage from the eye.
Most cases of pinkeye are caused by:

Infections caused by viruses or bacteria.
Dry eyes from lack of tears or exposure to wind and sun.
Chemicals, fumes, or smoke (chemical conjunctivitis).
Foreign bodies, such as dirt or bugs

Pinkeye may be more serious if you:

Have a condition that decreases your body's ability to fight infection (impaired immune system).
Have vision in only one eye.
Wear contact lenses


The same thing happens to me, but that's only because I have allergies and the pollen does that to my eyes. so it could either be allergies, or it may even be pink eye..you should take him to the doctor!

Sounds just like it, but of course, your GP would know. If you can't get a quick appointment, take him to a walk in..It is very contagious but easily treated..Good Luck

well ya! and you better go to the doc because its contagious as all hell and he shouldnt go to school for like 3 or 4 days

Take Him To The Eye Doctor. The Eyes Are Nothing To Fool Around With. GOOD LUCK MKS-7-15-02

It's possible, but it's also possible that it's another type of infection. You need to take him to his eye doctor (optometrist or ophthalmologist) for proper diagnosis and treatment. Your GP will likely end up referring him to an eye doctor anyway.

The bacteria that most commonly cause infectious pink eye are staphylococci, pneumococci, and streptococci. Bacterial pink eye symptoms include:

eye pain,
Redness in the whites of the eye or red, swollen and irritated eyelids.
-Sandy and scratchy feeling in the eyes with possible light sensitivity.
Tearing and/or mucus discharge from the eye or eyes.
a moderate to large amount of discharge, usually yellow or greenish in color.
The discharge commonly accumulates after sleeping. Affected children may awaken most unhappy that their "eyes are stuck shut," requiring a warm wash cloth applied to the eyes to remove the discharge and lots of reassurance that their "eyes still work!" This bacterial pink eye responds to repeated warm wash cloths applied to the eyes (try applying these to your child's eye one eye at a time during a favorite video!) and antibiotic eye drops or ointment prescribed by your doctor.

A physician should be notified:
- if there is pain in the eye, rather than irritation or if the patient feels there is a foreign object in the eye.
- if a greenish-yellow discharge is present and does not begin to improve within 24 hours.
- if an abnormal difference between the sizes of the pupils is present or if the skin around the eye or eyelid is red.
- if the problem continues for more than three days or seems to get progressively worse.
