My newborn is 2 months and 3 weeks old and he has been consistently rubbing his eyelids. He rubs his left one more than his right so his left one is really swollen and red. It doesn't look as bad if he doesn't rub it for awhile but then it gets swollen again once he rubs it. I've tried putting petroleum jelly on his eyelids to see if that helps heal it faster but I think his constant rubbing is preventing it from getting better.
