Baby’s Eyes Rub And Rash Around The Eyes?
AsalamualaikumMnight I want to ask, I have a baby who is 2 months old, my baby is born in junior high school age 2 months next to the eye and continues until the upper and lower eyelids, and the inner and outer corners of the eye are reddish like a rash until slightly swollen, what should I do thank you
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Eye-turning on a baby can signify many things, ranging from normal to abnormal responses. Twists that occur in newborns are generally a normal response in babies born as long as they don't appear in large or very large numbers and will generally improve on their own. But if it happens for months, it is necessary to consider other underlying causes such as the infection process for example.
The eye strain that occurs since a baby is born can also be caused by an infection from the birth canal when giving birth to a baby, for example gonorrhea infection, genital herpes, or other sexually transmitted infections.
For a while:
Clean the eyes of the baby by using clean gauze soaked in warm boiled water periodically
Avoid dust, cigarette smoke, pollution
Maintain personal and environmental hygiene
Wash your hands before playing with your child
Wash your baby's hands and avoid rubbing your eyes
It is a good idea to take your child to a pediatrician for further evaluation
So much information from me, hopefully it helps
