Good evening Anisah, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The situation that your child is experiencing right now can be in the form of one of the diseases below, namely:
Inflammation of the eyelids (blepharitis) Bintitan Inflammation of the lining of the eyes (conjunctivitis) Bleeding under the membrane of the eye (subconjunctivary bleeding) High pressure on the eyeball (glaucoma) and several other diseases To determine the cause, you should immediately bring your child to a specialist eye for further examination of complaints in the eyes that the child is experiencing at this time. Your child will also then do a number of eye examinations which include the state of his eyes and also the function of your child's eyes. After the examination, the new doctor will determine which diseases cause complaints in your child and will provide the most appropriate therapy.
For now, stop giving the eye ointment that you currently use and immediately bring your child to an ophthalmologist. Also make sure your child does not rub the eyes that are currently experiencing complaints and protect the eyes to avoid infection or contact certain objects / substances. Clean the eye dirt if there is dirt on the eyes that have complaints. You can also give artificial tears to help make your child's eyes feel more comfortable.
I hope this helps.
