My son's eyes get a little red sometimes on the lids around the eye and they are always watery. My pediatrician said the water might be from a blocked tear duct. I guess I'm wondering, is this normal baby stuff or caused by ich.

Kallie's get red on her lids a lot too and then they will clear up just as quickly. However, she did get a staph infection on her eyelids and from what I have read online thats a really common place so make sure you are cleaning his eyelids really well. But it could be just normal baby stuff too!

Mine get red and watery sometimes, especially right after a shower. Most of the time I think it is the dry skin at the edge of the eye lid pushing my eye lashes into my eye. Other times when I scrub my eye lids I seem to get pieces in my eye that make them water. It usually only lasts a day at the most. Make sure the eyelash area is clean and free of dead skin. I usually scrape it with my fingernail horizontally from edge to edge without scratching my eye and clear off most of what could block any ducts.
