Q.

Eyes

My son is 2 and a half years old. He is very healthy, eats and sleeps well. However for the past month now his eyes have been very teary and there is always puss in the corners. Please help.

There are many possible causes, but the most likely would be a viral infection or an allergic irritation. If the symptoms persist or deteriorate it would be best to have it evaluated.
