The Right Eye Swells In A 1-year-old Child?
At night, my child is only 1 month old but his right eye is bigger than his left eye, it has happened since my son’s right eye is rubbing and my backing time diligently cleaning it with warm water and cotton, but that’s when my child starts to be able to open both eyes with obviously the right eye is bigger than the left one. How is that? Will the big eyes be the same size later? And what solutions should I do to make my child’s eyes not one-sided? Thank you.
Hello Muhamad Sopian.
What do you mean by your child's eyes getting bigger? Is your child's eyes swollen, or the size of the pupils enlarged?
If the right eye swells, it may be caused by a bacterial infection. Bacterial infections can affect a variety of ages including at the age of 1 year. Bacterial infections in a child's eye can cause symptoms such as excessive secretions / splints, redness, swelling, and watering. Besides bacterial infections in the eye can also cause children to be fussy. Bacterial infections require treatment with certain antibiotics. Do not give any medicine to your child, and clean the eye dirt with a clean towel. Do not use cotton, because cotton can be left in the eye and more irritating to the eye. You can compress warm on the swollen child's eyes, compress with a clean towel warm.
But other than that, your child's condition can also be caused by other causes such as:
hordeolum / glaucoma Keratitis / inflammation of the cornea Certain tumors Therefore, check your child directly to the child's doctor, so the doctor can examine your child's condition further.
