Hello Sitti Zubaidah, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Please note, a diagnosis can only be established if it has been examined directly by a doctor. As for your information, there are several possible causes, namely:
Hordelum: is an inflammation of the oil glands in the eyelids due to bacteria, causing symptoms of red eyes, watery eyes, pain and swelling.
Kalazion: is a chronic (old) form of hordeolum, generally there are no signs of inflammation such as red / pain, but it is difficult to disappear on its own.
Milia: generally in the form of small white ears under the eyes.
It is better to have the child checked by a doctor for examination so that the diagnosis is known and treated immediately. While it can be compressed with warm water, and do not let the child rub his eyes, but help wash the child's eyes with running water.
It is not advisable to rub the eyes when they glaze, because there is a risk of injuring eye structures such as the conjunctival lining and cornea, which will only cause new problems. It is recommended to wash eyes with running water when experiencing twinkling. If after trying to remove it with running water, there is still a lump or object that enters the eye attached to it, immediately go to the nearest health service to get help from a doctor.
All of our suggestions and answers, hopefully useful, good afternoon.
