Causes Of Red Eye In Children Aged 16 Months?
Afternoon doctor, I want to ask I have a child aged 16 months already 3hrs red eyes like irritation what is the cause huh? And how do you cure it?
Hello Silvia, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Red eye can be caused by many possibilities, here are a few of them:
viral or bacterial infections in the eye eyes (for example hordeolum / kalazion or kalazion) We recommend that the condition of red eyes in infants get an examination from a doctor first so that it can be known with certainty the cause. This is especially if you see in the eyes of a baby a lot of dirt (often rubbing), or you see the baby's cornea looks cloudy. You should immediately bring the child to the pediatrician so that further testing can be done.
Some things you can do include:
Make sure the child does not rub his eyes a lot, make sure you always cut your child's nails short. Avoid direct sun exposure on children (especially on the eyes) Avoid exposure to dust or strong winds when you bring children out of the house Clean your home as often as possible so that no dust builds up and no other allergens can accumulate in a less clean environment. dripping any eye medication into the child's eyes before consulting a doctor directly
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
