Wash  over repeatedly  with diluted Rose Water (easily available at chemists). Please ensure it is diluted. Wash eyes. Also rest and avoid  TV or reading as well as sunshine.

As per me we must always view the body and its function or malfunctioning as one unit. So, if there’s a problem in the eye it’s more like a battle for the the whole body and we need to support the body to be able to fight it out. I would suggest, in addition to how you provide relief to the eye externally work on it internally as well!

For internally helping the body - give him concoction of 1 tbsp lemon, 1 tbsp honey and pinch of haldi every 4 hours. Let him eat light as only when body gets digestive rest it can focus on healing. So feed him only when he’s hungry. Give fruits, soups and coconut water. It will be good if he starts his day with soaked raisins as they are one of the most alkaline foods and body heals best in an alkaline environment. This also means u should reduce acidic foods such as grains, dairy, non veg, white sugar, refined oil, refined salt, packaged foods, etc.

When our eyes come in touch with something that raises a red flag in our immune system, our body releases a substance known as histamine. This causes the common symptoms of an eye allergy - tearing, red eyes, itching or burning sensation, and stringy eye discharge. You may also find that your eyelids get puffy and swollen.

Hence, an allergy is body’s way of fighting an external threat. It’s a natural process, we need not worry that something has gone wrong, we should be glad that body is doing it’s work. Our focus should be to help the body do it’s work and there are many things you can do.

For some relief, you should keep cleaning your son’s eyes with a clean cloth soaked in clean cool water. You can also put cucumber slices on his eyes.

I myself have a son who is 2 years and 10 months old, so I can totally imagine your agony. But hang in there, do whatever you think is doable. Also rest is very important for healing, so try to let him sleep as much as possible.
