I was sick with a cold for about a week. My allergies were acting up as well.The third day I woke up with my eyes a bit crusty and the left eye with white pus in the corner. This has been going on for 7 days. Not redness or swelling like with pink eye and I have had pink eye before when I was younger and this isn’t it.
Since I have been sick I haven’t felt like going to see my eye doctor. I am much better now. I have been putting a warm compress on both eyes a few times a day as well as doing the baby shampoo wash at night. Will this go away or am I gonna need to go see my eye doctor?
Thanks for your Question
These discharge and crusts in the corner of your eyes are due to the flu that you had. Flu can cause rhinitis which block nasolacrimal duct and tears are accumulated in your eyes which appears as discharge and crusts. Washing them regularly is enough. You can use lubricant eye drops also to washout the discharge.
In case you have red eye with itching, excessive tearing, foreign body sensation and light sensitivity, you should visit an eye doctor
