My 8 year old son just developed severe bloodshot eyes
about 1 1/2 weeks ago. He has never had this before. Before this happened, he had a pretty bad cold, and had lots of coughing, but, his coughing, although frequent, was not hard, but shallow and dry. He says his eyes do not hurt, and there is no sign of mucus or discharge. He does not seem ill, nor exceptionally tired. He is not showing any signs of allergies
, nor is he sneezing or having any eye itching. Yet, this suddenly appeared, and has not gone away.
I'm pretty sure that this happened right after swimming in a pool at a community center. However, the pool was not chlorinated, but rather, treated with some kind of spagnum moss filtration-which supposedly is less intrusive to our bodies(?) At first I thought his red eyes
might be due to that night of swimming, but, since it has been almost two weeks, I didn't think that he should still be affected. I'm concerned.
