Eye shadow should not cause that.....

How long ago did this happen?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Today at school some time after 12. When I picked her up her eyes were white, not gooey, but it rapidly got worse. She's sleeping now, but it's swollen and constantly gooey. I agree it can't be the eye-shadow.. But its certainly an infection.. her doesn't hurt she says, doesn't feel scratchy.. She does not have any allergies also.

I was going to take her to pediatrician in the morning

When I picked her up from school it almost looked like a lazy eye but not red or gooey

That sounds like a good plan as the eye shadow, unless it has caused a corneal ulcer, would not incite such a reaction.

I hope she feels better soon.

Don't forget to mash the positive (excellent is the most fun to push) feedback button.....without this important step on your part the funds you left on deposit are not released and my kids will spend another cold winter barefoot ;)

It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I don't go up in a puff of smoke -- I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.
