The Eyes Of Children Aged 18 Months Are Red And Shit Comes Out?
good afternoon, I want to ask, this is my 18-month-old child, his eyes continue to bleed red.
Hello, Ms. Qori Lelyana. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com.
How long has the complaint of red-eye accompanied by discharge of this impurities occur in your child? Does it occur in one eye or in both eyes? Dirty, what do you mean by liquid / thick and what color? Are there other complaints, such as fever, runny nose, or sneezing?
Complaints of red eyes accompanied by discharge can be caused by several possibilities, including:
Bacterial conjunctivitis (inflammation of the conjunctiva due to bacterial infection, generally there is a complaint of thick eye discharge and yellow) Viral conjunctivitis (inflammation of the conjunctiva due to viral infection, generally there are complaints of many eyes secrete clear fluid) Allergic conjunctivitis (inflammation of the conjunctiva due to allergic reactions, generally accompanied by complaints of conjunctival inflammation due to viral infection, generally there are complaints of many eyes releasing clear fluid) other allergies such as runny nose and sneezing) Acute keratitis (inflammation of the cornea, causing a sharp decrease in vision) We recommend that your child be examined by a doctor or ophthalmologist so that an evaluation of the exact cause is given and appropriate treatment is given. Your doctor may give you eye drops and / or antibiotic eye ointments, and if necessary artificial tear drops. At home the patient's parents are encouraged to:
Do not give any eye drops or other types of eye drops (including traditional concoction water) without doctor's instructions and supervision No rubbing the eyes of patients Maintaining hygiene, avoiding excessive exposure to pollution Consumption of balanced nutritious food To enrich insight, you can read articles about red eye treatment in children. Such is our explanation. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
