Red Spots On Baby’s Eyes After Sticking Fingers?
my child is 4 months old, he has his eyes striking by his brother. And now in the right eye there are red spots. What must be done for the first treatment. Is that dangerous?
Hello Ummu, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you should describe it first, how hard is the baby's eye plugged, is it plugged in the finger or just a certain sharp object, is the older sister's nails long?
If after the child's eyes appear red, is constantly watery, the child becomes fussy, there is swelling in the eyelids, you should take your child to the eye doctor so that further examination of the eyes can be done. Striking eyes are at risk of injury to the cornea (clear layer above the black part of the eye). Injury to the cornea, although it can heal quickly, still requires examination and medication to ensure there is no infection in the cornea that causes healing to last longer and scar tissue is formed on the cornea. Damaged corneas and scar tissue can cause permanent visual disturbances, so you should do an examination immediately and don't delay.
For now, there is nothing you can do, don't put eye medication on your child because it can be dangerous for your child's eyes. Make sure the eyes do not plug back in and make sure the child does not rub his eyes with his hands.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
