1 Answer:

Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. There are many causes of pink eye in babies, ranging from simple to those that require further treatment. It is better if you know it so that you can give the best for your child.

Among the causes of red eye are:

Irritation can be caused by cigarette smoke, taking in shampoo, or catching a cold or a viral infection, especially if there is a family member who has a similar complaint. Rupture of a blood vessel, which even though it looks creepy, is not a dangerous thing. However, if after 2 weeks it does not go away, check with a doctor. Inflammation of the conjunctival structures of the eye due to viruses, bacteria, or allergies

Of course, to really know the cause of what your child is experiencing requires a direct examination by an eye doctor. So our advice, have your child checked by an ophthalmologist, and meanwhile, avoid your child's eyes from dust, dirt, cigarette smoke, and clean his eyes from dirt with a soft damp cloth. Make sure you and everyone who touches your baby always wash their hands beforehand. We wish you and your family good health.

That's all, hope it helps.
