Swelling In The Lower Eyelid Accompanied By Pus In Newborns?
the same as having a child who is only 2 weeks old already 3 days d his lower eyelids like stumps there like pus, how do I deal with it ???
Good afternoon, thanks for the question
Symptoms of swelling in the lower eyelid accompanied by pus in newborns may be a medical condition known as acute dacryocystitis. This condition is an inflammation of the tear glands in the inner corner of the eye which is characterized by redness, swelling, warm touch, pain, and pus production. This condition is relatively rare in newborns.
Suspicion of this condition needs to be confirmed through a direct physical examination by a doctor to assess the clinical symptoms that exist. Other possible conditions that have similar symptoms include infantile hemangiomas, nasal gliomas, or dermoid cysts. Existing pus should also be carried out laboratory tests to determine the bacteria that causes it to determine the specific type of antibiotic as a treatment.
We recommend that you immediately consult with an eye specialist for further examination. If it is caused by the above conditions then perku given antibiotic therapy immediately to prevent the spread of further infections.
That's all, hope you can help.
