Question Please help: pink eye or allergies? abx? BM?

My 22 month old started having greenish "eye boogers" on Friday. As the day went on, her eyes seemed a little pink to me. She has woken up with crusties the past two mornings, and occasionaly blobs each day. She has rubbed her eyes more than usual, and she told me her eyes were a boo boo. It doesn't seem to be getting worse. Better, if anything. It seems like it's bacterial pink eye according to www.askdrsears.com, but it doesn't seem too bad. What I remember was pretty miserable.

I haven't put anything in her eyes yet. I know breastmilk can help. I thawed one of my last bags yesterday (I have dried up because of my pregnancy), but I didn't put it in in time & lost it . I thought MIL would do it, and I hate strapping her down for a fight, TBH.

My point is, I don't know if it's the contagious stuff, and I hate to send her to a mainstream Doc. if it's not, but I hate to miss work on Tuesday if it's still around. Her sitter is a LLL leader, but she's a stickler when it comes to meds.

What do I do????

Boy thats a hard one!! I do have to say though my friends boy had pink eye 3x and it was RED, like without a doubt pink eye. My sister also has a 5 year old and they had the same situation you do and turned out to be allergies. we did notice with him that it was worse in the am and would come and go some through out the day, but never got really red like the pink eye. Alright dont really know if that helps.........I am kind of diff when it comes to the dr and we go for everything!!! Let usknow what happens!
