my daughter has this strange mucus that has formed on her eyes. i wipe her eyes with a clean cloth but for some reason when she woke up in the middle of the night not only did she have even more mucus on her eyes, but some of it had started to dry causing her to feel like something was in her eye. her eyes are slightly red as well. i have never seen or heard of anything like this. is there anyone there who has or know of some1 that could possibly explain to me as to what is happening?
