Obstruction of the lacrimal canal, kids

Many young mommies are faced with such a diagnosis as obstruction of the tear duct. Others only heard about this. My son and I are among the first, and therefore I want to tell you what it is and how it is treated.
What is this diagnosis

I’ll start with the definition. Obstruction of the lacrimal tubule or dacryocyst is an inflammation of the lacrimal sac with its complete or partial obstruction, which is accompanied by purulent discharge from the eyes. Very common in newborns.

The cause of obstruction may be a gelatin plug, which did not resolve at the time of birth. This tube is a film that closes the tear-nasal canal of a child in the womb, and must break with the first breath of the child. But sometimes this does not happen. This situation has developed with us.

The obstruction of the tear duct is very easily confused with ordinary conjunctivitis. These two diseases have very similar symptoms.

And we were first treated for conjunctivitis. Problems were only with one eye. There was pus. We were prescribed to wipe the sore eye with chamomile, furatsilina solution. It seems to be getting a little better, but it did not help.

We went again to the doctor. The child was examined and told to continue washing the eye and they added drops of Tobrex and Sulfacil (Albucid), which had to be alternated. They also said to do a tear bag massage.


A little bit about the massage. Before the start of the massage, it is necessary to rinse the eye, squeeze out the pus, and only then begin the massage movements. This is done very carefully. Use your index finger to draw a semicircle near the inner corner of the eye, as if circling the semiring from top to bottom. We make this movement with a slight pressure downwards, as if trying to break the film. After the massage, the eye is instilled with drops of Levomycetin 0.25%.

Do massage recommended up to 7 times a day for two weeks.

After two weeks I didn’t see the improvement in the condition of the eye. The baby has become very irritable. This is understandable, if I had been bothered with my eyes so many times a day, I would have lost my mind. We went to the reception again. The son was examined again, but this time they have already written out a referral for probing, penetrating the tubule surgically. As I explained, something like a fine hair is inserted into the channel, which breaks the film.

Of course, it was scary, the kid was just a little more than a month. But the procedure was quick (10 minutes), before the son dropped painkillers. I only heard her cry and that was all. I myself was more afraid. After this, Floksal drops were prescribed for ten days.

Two weeks later, we forgot that we had suffered for so long with a small eye. More we have eye problems. So, if you have already made such a diagnosis – do not be afraid. Adequate treatment will help to cope with it.
