This just means that a small blood vessel that lies within the conjunctiva broke and the blood is trapped under the conjunctiva which is a clear layer of tissue that lays over the sclera (white part of the eye). You should still have him see an eye doctor to confirm this and rule-out any further damage.It will last 7-14 days before clearing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Pinkeye is the common term for conjunctivitis, which is an infection of the eye surface. Caused by viruses or bacteria.

It can produce a rather odd appearance to the tongue. The common term for the issue is "geographic tongue" as it often looks like continents separated by oceans (oxymetazoline). ...Read more
