I am sorry you have not been well and your boy's eye is hurting.Hiding means he is in pain.
apply a cool, damp teabag. 3 minutes on and 5 off for an hour.
Repeat as necessary. The tanic acid in the tea will sooth his eye and reduce the PH of his tears.
If he continues to be in pain he may have a corneal abrasion and would need to be seen by an eye specialist.
Please let me know how he is doing. I hope both of you feel better very soon.
