My new born baby of 15 days has got watery eyes. Water keeps coming out of her eyes. What needs to be done in this case.

It is due to blockage of lacrimal sac. Lacrimal massage may be helpful, even then consult eye specialist for correct diagnosis and tt earlier.
It is due lack of proper opening of nasolacrimal duct (a tube from eye to nose). YOu have to massage the corner of eye with nose repeatedly and it will help.
It could be due to blockage of naso-lacrimal duct (it carries tears from eyes to nose). It resolves spontaneously in most babies by 15 months of age; if not then probing is done. Till then treatment is needed if there is stickiness of eyes or pus. Is present in eye/s.
your child may be suffering from congenital dacrocystitis. Please Google criggler's massage and do accordingly.
