Q.

Exocin - 3 month old with blocked duct

Good day My baby has had a discharge from her eye since birth and she is now 16 weeks old. I took her to an eye specialist and he said that the duct running in the corner of her eye into the nose is blocked. I need to drain it twice a day by massaging it. Usually there is quite a lot of yellow fluid coming out. He also prescribed Exocin, he said that I should use it for a month, but I see the pamphlet says no longer than 10 days. So I am just wondering should I stop or continue after 10 days?
