The baby loves to shed a lot of tears and mucus. Are you angry? Parents need to know this

As a parent, have you also encountered such a situation:

The child does not cry, does not make trouble, is quiet, but tears from time to time, There is a lot of eye mucus, which may be in one eye or both eyes at the same time. Many parents may think that the child is angry and has tried many methods to no avail. Generally speaking, infants and young children have more mucus and tears due to the following reasons: 1. Dacryocystitis and lacrimal duct problems After infants and young children are born, within two or three months, under normal circumstances, there is a layer of nasolacrimal duct. The membrane will naturally rupture, and the tear ducts of the eyes will be unobstructed. If it has not ruptured naturally, the lacrimal duct obstruction and dacryocystitis of the newborn will occur. This is called neonatal dacryocystitis or congenital dacryocystitis in ophthalmology. Its main manifestation is that the baby will shed tears all the time, which looks teary, and may also be accompanied by a lot of mucus, abscesses in the corners of the eyes, etc. After severe pressing, there will be viscous secretions flowing out of the corners of the eyes. 2. Bacterial infection or trichiasis Generally speaking, infants and young children love to cry, have a lot of mucus, and have abscesses in the corners of the eyes, and the probability of dacryocystitis is relatively high. In addition, it may also be conjunctivitis or trichiasis. If the eyes of infants and young children are red and congested, and there is a lot of eye mucus, it may be conjunctivitis caused by bacterial infection. In addition, when the baby is two or three months old, the eyelashes are easy to grow inward, which is commonly known as trichiasis, which stimulates the eyeball to easily produce symptoms such as mucus and tears. No matter what the reason is, when the baby has symptoms such as excessive eye mucus and tears, it is recommended to go to the doctor in time and follow the professional guidance. Don't "misdiagnose" delays because of self-righteousness, making dacryocystitis or the condition more and more serious.
