Dear Jade
If the discharge is yellow and your eyelids stick to each other it may be a light bacterial infection on top of an allergy. Try Loratidine tablets 1 at night, Spersallerg eyedrops as needed for itchyness and for 3 days, Chloromycetin eyedrops 4 hourly if you are not allergic to any medications. If this does not help, see your doctor for an eye examination and the taking of a swab?
