Tears in daughter&#39 s eye
My 5years old daughter drips tears from left eye and see says it is painful. I consulted her paedratrician and ws told it' s an allergy reaction. She was given medication and has finished it.
The tears still continue to drip. Should see an eye specialist for this? I am concerned that her eye-sight may be affected.

This does not sound like an allergic problem. Your daughter may have an eye infection or a blocked tear duct of her left eye. It would be best to see an eye specialist.
