I am just wondering if anyone else has experienced this and if you found anything that helped. We have been to the pediatrician about this twice and my daughter doesn't have anything stuck in her eyes, doesn't have an infection and hasn't scratched them or anything. Every morning she wakes up with beautiful, clear eyes. Then especially on days when she plays outside a lot, by lunch time her eyes are getting red and itchy, and by mid-afternoon and evening they are bothering her a lot and she cries and has trouble falling asleep.
The pediatrician prescribed some eye drops called Patanol, and as a last resort we have also started giving her children's claritin most days.
I don't really want to be having to give her allergy medication every day, especially since she is so young, but she is in so much distress if I don't, I can't not give it to her.
I am trying to make her a smoothie with bee pollen every day to try to help get her body on top of this.
Has anyone else experienced anything like this? What did you do? What helped??
Thanks in advance!!
