my ds had a blocked tear duct and it finally went away after some anti-biotic eye drops

Thank you for your input dizzymare and ggirl.

I have tried eyedrops and also antiboitic cream - both to no avail. I have today started rubbing the side of her nose from bridge down a few times a day hoping to unblock the duct.

How's it looking now?
Is there any improvement?

Its still there. When I remember, I massage the side of her nose. Hopefully, one day, it will gradually disappear.
Thank you fo your concern.
