Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
how long has she been having diarrhea? What were her eye symptoms before and how do they compare now? Does she have a runny nose, sneezing, itchy eyes, discharge?
Hello concerned mommy 1968
I tend to think the diarrhea is probably viral gastroenteritis, stomach flu, and it will take its course which is usually very brief, couple of days. If this is correct, be careful, this is very contagious to everyone in the house. Keep her hydrated and rested. As for the eyes, she may have one of two things now. If she is having some sneezing, runny nose, itching, then she probably has some allergies and she can benefit from an eyedrop called Zaditor, it is an anti allergy medicine safe for children and over the counter. It can be used 2 times daily and should help with allergic symptoms. In addition she can be given loratadine to help her sneezing, runny nose. Other thing she may be having is some residual irritation from her bout of pink eye. This would be causing discomfort without the sneezing, runny nose etc. For this I recommend the use of lubricating eye drops like Refresh Liquigel which will help her eyes feel better. I wish her well, and do let me know if you have any other questions, Dr. Stevens
