    Infants with pink eye will have green or yellow discharge from their eyes and the white parts of their eyes and lower rim of either of his eyelids will turn red. They will also have some goopy things in their eyes which make them hard to keep the eyes open. Pink eye happens when an infection, an allergen, or some other irritant inflames the transparent membrane covering the whites of the eyes and the inside of the eyelids.

    When your baby is infected, after a few hours or 1-6 days, your baby will have the disease, which is manifested as tearing, burning eyes, having foreign body sensation, having a lot of mucus or purulent discharge. The baby who have pink eye is often difficult to open eyes in the morning, and the eyes are swollen, with congestion. But in general, it will not affect vision. You should let your baby eat more vegetables, fresh fruit and other food supplement. Once your baby have this disease, the towel, handkerchief and basin which used by your baby should be sterilized by boiling, and prepare their personal wash utensils.
