My 3 month old daughter woke up yesterday with a blood red spot in the inner corner of her eye. Her doctor can't see her until next week.

Harmless: Generally speaking, the sudden appearance of a blood red spot on the white of the eye(sclera) is due to harmless bleeding from very tiny blood vessels that cross the surface of the sclera.Minor rubbing of the eye can cause
them to bleed,but the blood is trapped between the sclera and a transparent film of tissue called the conjunctiva (think plastic Saran wrap)>eye turns red. No Rx needed. ...Read more

8months ago i had bells palsy in right side & numbed left side,after recovery got pain behind left eye. now still have the eye pain & got blood spot i?

SOME THOTS: Bilateral issues suggest that this is NOT just simple Bell's palsy, and instead may represent a different process. Eye pain with a blind spot raises questions of an optic nerve inflammation. Suggest visit to neurologist, as several different explanations may need to be considered. I would test for sarcoid, MS, vasculitis like lupus, etc. We might be able to help further via
