I just realized that the area around his eyes is very red and irritated and he has managed to scratch and cut himself a bit is this due to the same allergy? I keep his hair up in a top knot to avoid getting hair in his eyes to avoid infection. It seems that he has more "guck" than normal around his eyes. I brush and clean his eyes on a daily basis. This literally has happened overnight. Is there something I can apply around his eye?
