Hello doctor, I am asking what is the danger if baby’s eyes are exposed to powder? When my baby didn’t cry, his eyes weren’t red either. Is that a sign he’s okay? Or the effect hasn’t come out yet? I am very scared doctor, my baby is only 1 month old

1 Answer:

Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Unlike older children, teenagers and parents, babies still do not have a good blink reflex. The blinking reflex is a reflex that develops to protect the eye from the threat of damage to the eye by blinking, for example if someone suddenly moves their hand quickly towards the eye, we will suddenly blink. Or when we are riding a motorbike, suddenly sand gets into our eyes, we will immediately blink. Babies, especially those who are 1 month old, do not have it.


So what we want to say, because the powder is a foreign object, of course it can't be said that it's okay just because your baby doesn't show symptoms of red eyes or crying. Whenever there is a foreign object that enters the eye, it must be immediately removed or flowed with water. Make sure there are no foreign objects in your baby's eyes by wiping them gently with a damp cloth. The next time you find a foreign object that is difficult to remove, don't force it to be picked up yourself and take it to the doctor. So, hopefully it answers your question.
