Q.

Teary eyes all the time

Hi my baby is now 1 yrs old and since he was born he always had very teary eyes. When he is doing something then all of a sudden his left eye would tear constantly. My MIL is very worried about it but i'm "assuming" that its something they grow out of. Not only that he is teething at the moment and therefore he has itchy ears, could this be an infection or just a problem developing because of his teething. Please advise and thank you...

Paediatrician

The most likely cause is blocked tear ducts of both eyes. Please ask your paediatrician to refer your baby to an eye specialist for an opinion.
