Thanks, Siobhan, I'll let DIL know. I didn't know that iodine was irritating. I had already advised a saline solution for a gunky eye and now I'm wondering if I should have said non-iodized salt. It's a trick my doctor taught me when my kids were little. He said I could buy the "physiological water" (translation of French term, I don't know what it's called in English) at the drugstore but it was just salt water and I'd be better just doing it on my own. My kind of thinking entirely.

More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.
