Does this sound like conjunctivitis?

I noticed yesterday my 11 month olds eyes seemed to look heavy, like she had a cold, greyish pink eye whites and a bit of gloop kept forming on the inner corner and its the same today.

My 7 year old seems to have the same look around his eyes today colourwise but without the gunk, he was complaining of skre/itchy eyes this morning.

If it is do I need to call doctor tomorrow and should I keep eldest off school?

Hi there, my advice would be to wash the eyes out with water as often as possible. My ds used to get conjunctivitis a lot so the first sign of it I wash his eyes with cooled boiled water.
