Eye pain in newborns, especially in the first 1 month, needs to be watched out because if eye pain occurs accompanied by pain, the child is fussy, especially when touched the eye, swollen eyelids or discharge from the eye, it is necessary to immediately consult a doctor.
Some of the possibilities that can cause it are bacterial infection, virus or other causes or a disturbance on the surface of the eyeball. Later the doctor will provide treatment according to the cause where if the cause is a bacterial infection, antibiotics will be given while if it arises due to a virus, an antiviral will be given. Avoid giving eye medication carelessly, some efforts that can be done at home are to clean sticky eye fluids using a sterile cloth and warm water as well as to reduce swelling and irritation, but before and after, don't forget to wash your hands first.
Immediately consult a doctor, because eye pain in newborns can cause ongoing disturbances or complications and worsening if not treated properly or if delayed.
