We understand the concerns that you feel. Red and watery eyes can be caused by viral or bacterial infections (conjunctivitis), irritation, dry eye disorders or allergies.
Eye infections / conjunctivitis are often found in children to adults. Generally bacterial conjunctivitis causes symptoms of red eye accompanied by the emergence of dirt in the eye, whereas viral conjunctivitis causes red eye, accompanied by excessive tear production and a lump in the eye that hurts without seeing dirt in the eye.
Apart from conjunctivitis, there are various causes that can cause red and watery eyes such as allergies and dry eye / dry eye. While the white spots on the eyeball must be re-evaluated, whether related to infection or other eye disorders are suspected.
Administration of medicines must be based on a physical examination carried out directly. Antibiotic eye drops and ointments can be given if a bacterial infection is suspected, artificial tear drops can be given for viral infections and administration of antihistamines can be considered according to instructions from the examining doctor.
But because your niece is still a child, you should not use drugs without a prescription from a doctor directly. Therefore, we suggest that you check your nephew with the nearest doctor or ophthalmologist for further evaluation.
