Clear heat and dampness to clear your eye boogers
Eye boogers are the discharge from the eyes. They are mainly made up of fats, tears and dusts. It is normal if they appear occasionally, but we need to take note of it if the frequency increases.
Chinese Medicine opined that eye boogers are a symptom that reflects body heat, which is a result of a hectic work schedule and staying up late. The increase in eye boogers is due to the accumulation of body heat in the liver. If an individual has damp-heat body condition, his or her eye boogers will become thicker and stickier.
In order to improve the condition, eat light and clear food, avoid eating raw, cold, spicy and heavily seasoned food; avoid drinking alcohol and concentrated coffee; avoid smoking. Consume food that can clear heat and dampness, and drink more soup as well.
If the eye boogers turn yellow, coupled with conditions like redness, itch or pain in the eyes, it could mean bacterial and viral infection. Individuals with these eye conditions should seek immediate treatment. This is common among toddlers, as their tear ducts have yet to fully develop, therefore, we need to be mindful of their hygiene. As toddlers grow older, the situation should improve; but if the same condition persists, do seek professional medical advice.

Appropriately add in ingredients such as lotus leaf, coix seed, munk bean, smilax etc.
