Baby’s Eyes Are Red Like Scratched?
my child’s eyes are scratched by an object. Blushed, and there are short lines if it is dangerous. And eye medication is suitable for my baby, 10 months old
Hello Asrianti, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Trauma to the eye, as a result, including minor scratches can cause injury / damage to one part of the eye, especially if it causes complaints such as injury to the conjunctiva of the eye, injury to the cornea of the eye or even cause infection in the eye.
Therefore, you should immediately take your child to the doctor for further examination of the condition of his own eyes and also the function of vision so that it can also be determined whether this condition is dangerous or not. Medication for the right eye will also be adjusted to the abnormalities that occur in your child's eyes, for now it is not recommended to use eye drops or any eye ointment without a clear recommendation from a doctor.
If the results of the examination require further treatment, the doctor will definitely encourage your child to be treated further by an ophthalmologist to get optimal treatment.
For now, it is recommended not to rub or hold your child's eyes. If it feels uncomfortable, may be helped by giving drops of artificial tears that are sold freely, and immediately consult a doctor.
I hope this helps.
