Has Baby been rubbing her face??
Ask Your Own Veterinary Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
she's had it for maybe about four days
Veterinarian: DrRoyC, Veterinarian replied 11 months ago
Think of an itchy bug bite, the more you scratch, the more irritation there is. She has an active eyelid infection or conjunctivitis. Not pink eye, but similar to in children.

Will it go away on its own? Is there anything I can do?
Veterinarian: DrRoyC, Veterinarian replied 11 months ago
With mice it's hard to stop the rubbing, with a dog or cat we would put on an E-Collar. Use artificial tears in both eyes every 2-3 hours to flush & help with irritation. Over the counter eye meds are not safe due to very small size
