Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a licensed veterinarian and would be glad to help!
It sounds as if your kitten may have a conjunctivitis, which is often part of the URI syndrome.
This link should help:http://www.petplace.com/cats/conjunctivitis-in-cats/page1.aspxI would NOT give that medication. If there is an infection or scratch - the DEX part of the medication can make this MUCH MUCH MUCH worse!!!
Options for at home care include:- To try to warm compress the eye with a clean, damp, warm cloth. This will help with inflammation in the area.- The second recommendation is to try to flush the eye with a sterile saline solution. I am referring to a normal, over the counter saline solution commonly found in the same aisle of the grocery story or drugstore as contact solution.- If this does not work - seeing your veterinarian for evaluation and likely topical antibiotics would be recommended.I hope this helps!_____________________________________________________________________Please click "ACCEPT" if the information I have provided has been of help so I receive credit for my work.
