It sounds like a bacterial infection, however, the best way for me to determine the most appropriate medication is to evaluate his eyes in the office and under the slit-lamp microscope. In the meanwhile, make sure he is cleaning off the discharge, washing hands frequently, does not wear contacts, and you should wash his pillowcase and towels every day so as not to spread the pink eye to the rest of the household. Please call us at 773-549-1111 or schedule a visit online at DrJoannaSlusky.com so that he can be seen ASAP. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance!
