Hi! My 7 month old son has developed a white bump on the white of his eye, it is also very red.  He is congested and has mucus running from the nose and eyes.  The white bump has grown overnight, the only thing I've done is drop breastmilk into the eye.  Any thoughts? Thanks! -Holly Galvez

This sounds ok.  i've seen it alot and it usually will just go away - it's just from irritation from the illness.  You should call your doctor though to let he or she decide if it should be looked at.
