Redness In Corner Of Left Eye Of My Baby

by Mrinalini
(India)

For the past one week, the corner of the left eye is red in color for my 8 month old baby.

We went to the pediatrician and he suggested Ciplox to be applied for 5 days - 5 drops a day.

We have applied it for two days. It's slightly reduced.

What could this be?

Should we consult a Opthalmologist or should we wait for five complete days to see whether it goes off. Any suggestions would be greatly helpful.

Thanks in advance
First time mom

Advice When Baby Has Red Eye


She should be fine just keep applying her medicine. Her tear duct in her left eye probably got a little infected. It can be caused from a cold or any kind of debris that gets into the eye.

Be sure to try to keep her hands clean whenever you can and, if possible, watch that she does not touch her eyes, so that she does not spread the bacteria into the one that is not affected.

If you finish the medication and her eye is no better or gets red again then take her right back to the doctor. Hope she feels better soon.

Thanks a lot for your advice.

We consulted an ophthalmologist and he said it was a minor allergy and suggested eye drops for ten days.

Now she seems to be okay.

For the past 6 days we have applied the drops, and we have to do it for four more days. The redness is slightly present, but I am confident that it will go away over the next few days.

Thanks!
