    I think our 5yo has been misdiagnosed twice. First we were told it was
    allergies and then later an infection. Both treatments helped, but
    symptoms keep coming back.

    His right eye is yellow/greyish, often red, sometimes he wakes with
    miucos(sp) in the eye. The on the corner skin under theeye is a
    lighter pigment and shafing (not sure if related) - we were given a
    ointment for this which helped, but the discoloration came back. The
    other eye seems to be fine. His vision does not appear to be affected
    by the symptoms, though he does itch and scratch alot - sometimes he
    complains it hurts.

    We've scheduled an appointing with a specialist.

    Kinda worried about this - any idea what this could be?
