Eye Festering In An 11 Month Old Baby?
mlam .. if I am still 11 months old..it’s eyes seem nice … is that why ??
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Do you mean the eyes of your child appear to emit a continuous yellowish-white eye discharge like pus? Are there other symptoms experienced by children, such as redness in the eyes, swelling of the eyelids, or other symptoms that seem to bother the child?
If your child does not experience other symptoms (no red eyes) only often remove eye discharge or his eyes look often wet and often tears, then the possibility experienced by children is a blockage in the tear outlet. This tear outlet connects the lower part of the eyelid to the nose, and generally occurs in children when a new child has an infection in his respiratory tract (runny nose) or the child often experiences allergies and irritation in his respiratory tract. This condition is not dangerous and will heal by itself after the blockage is gone. You can help by compressing the inner corner of the eye (the part near the nose) with a warm compress and gently massaging the corners of the eyes as often as possible. Clean his eyes so that the dirt does not accumulate and cause children to have difficulty opening their eyes.
If you see the child's eyes also appear reddish and his eyelids look swollen too, the child looks uncomfortable (his eyes look itchy or painful), and if redness and discharge of eye discharge occurs in both eyes, then your child may have an infection in his eyes. In this case, you should immediately take the child to the ophthalmologist for further evaluation and management. Don't touch your child's eyes too often, and make sure you wash your hands with soap if you have touched or cleaned the child's eyes. It is better not to have other children who are also holding the child's eyes and do not take your child to a public place first so that no transmission of infection occurs to other children.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
