Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Child's eyelids that appear reddish, swollen, accompanied by white spots may indicate an infection. One of the most common causes of this condition is bintitan (hordeolum). This condition occurs when the oil glands in the eyelid are infected by bacteria, often a type of Staphylococcus. As a result, the eyelids will turn red, swell, feel painful, warm when touched, and can appear vaginal discharge from the pus. In most cases, stints are not dangerous and can rupture or collapse by themselves without special treatment. The stump can appear on the upper or lower eyelid, especially in people with poor personal hygiene and also sufferers of certain diseases, such as blepharitis or rosacea.
In addition to stints, there are many other conditions that can also trigger complaints such as those of your child, for example kalazion with secondary infections, blepharitis, contact dermatitis, insect bites, preseptal cellulitis, benign or malignant tumors, and so on. Without a direct examination, it is difficult for us to ascertain the diagnosis of the cause of your child's complaints. Therefore, in order to get the best treatment, you can check your child directly to the doctor, pediatrician, or ophthalmologist.
At home, you can help alleviate your child's complaints by:
Carefully clean the child's eye area, that is, using a tissue or clean gauze moistened with warm water, press it slightly, do not rub or squeeze carelessly. Avoid the child's eyes so as not to enter dangerous foreign particles, for example by giving him protective glasses when overdoing it, first limit traveling on a bicycle or motorbike, limit playing in windy or dusty environments. Ask the child not to rub his eyes excessively. Wash your hands and bathe the child cleanly using special child skin care products. Do not carelessly give children medicine without doctor's advice.
