Customer Question

I used neosporin on my childs nose to treat impetigo and he rubbed it then his eyes... and i believe he got it in there. he acted as if his eyes hurt and (he's 18 months) didn't want me to wipe them or anything...
JA: OK. The Doctor will need to help you with this. Anything else I can tell the Doctor before I connect you two?
Customer: i did hold him down and put eye drops in... after that he seemed to open them a little more. I don't know if he was tired from the trauma but now he is down for a nap.
