A week ago my 14 month old eye started to get red and watery. The doctor thought it was pink eye but the drops didn't work. Then thought it was a bacteria infection but those drops aren't working, actually making it worse. No discharge but his eye is blood shot and his eye lids are swollen and red/purple. He is on antibiotics but still really swollen. slowly getting to where he can open his eye. He had a cold and had a running nose before his eye started.. he would sneeze then wipe his eye. I don't know what else to do for him. No fever and he seems to be ok. To touch his eye, he screams. Help
