How long are you having the symptoms?

What is the color of the discharge?

Is it in both the eyes?

Which drop are you using?

Thank you.

Thank you for the information,

I would advise to get an examination by doctor.

It does not sound like an allergy.

This can be due to an infection.

You can need antibiotic eye drops or other medicines.

I hope this information helps.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Please feel free for any follow up query.

Best wishes.
