Eyes Rub And Bleed On Babies Aged 2 Weeks.?
Hello. I want to ask … my child was only 2 weeks, initially a few days later, his eyes suddenly turned red. 1 Sunday the child had an eye ache … it took a long time for him to bleed like blood … that’s how please answer me, because I was very worried? ???
Wa alaikumsalam. thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your concern. Symptoms of redness and cloaking of eyes are conditions that can occur for many reasons. As for eye symptoms such as bleeding, it is actually a very rare symptom and usually only occurs if there is indeed injury due to sharp objects in the eye. Blood will not just flow because blood has its own veins. The possibility that your child's condition can occur due to various things, such as:
Decreased infection from mother to child
Infections during labor
Infection from the surrounding environment
If only the eye limp or dirt, in fact this is a normal condition, because babies, especially those who are only 2 weeks old, the tear ducts are still not perfect and blockages can occur which results in the formation of a splint. However, because there are other symptoms such as reddened eyes and something that may look like bleeding, you should immediately take your baby to the eye doctor for a direct examination. By looking directly, also with complete information about your pregnancy history, other symptoms, baby characteristics such as weight, habits at home, etc., can be determined more precise diagnosis and the best treatment.
In the meantime, don't worry too much, make sure your baby's crib is clean, and clean his eye dirt regularly using warm wet gauze from the corner of the eye close to the nose out. Do not rub, and make sure you wash your hands before also after cleaning. So, hopefully answering your question.
