Natural Remedies For Clogged Eye Ducts In Newborns

We have learned most newborns getting clogged eye ducts were given the antibiotic erythromycin eye ointment at birth, which can lead to newborns being prescribed another antibiotic after the erythromycin ointment led to a clogged tear duct.

Parents are not being told this connection and they are also not being told that if your baby gets a clogged tear duct, a simple warm water solution of baking soda and salt water dripped into the duct can help it clear up right away, instead of giving their baby another antibiotic. This natural solution does not hurt or burn and is a naturopathic remedy that naturopaths recommend.

More parents are declining this potentially dangerous and harmful erythromycin eye ointment for their newborn and you can see why, your baby doesn’t generally benefit from it at all and it does harm children.


Amanda S -Does the baking soda and salt water work at any age? Do not want to get the procedure done to have it fixed, not a fan of him going under anesthesia at 2 1/2. Yes

Kate O- Breastmilk worked on my daughter’s clogged tear duct when she was a few days old.

Robyn H- Breastmilk works the best.

Vang K -It happened to us, breastmilk and colloidal silver, works wonders.
