Subconjunctiva blood: It sounds like your son got a subconjunctival hemorrhage. 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 more

My stepsons eye is watering and is red. Could this b pink eye?

Yes: Pinkeye is the common term for conjunctivitis, which is an infection of the eye surface. Caused by viruses or bacteria. Viral is more common, affects both eyes, and usually redness and discharge are mild (allergy can also do this). Bacterial usually affects one eye (at least at first), and more pronounced redness and discharge (antibiotic drops will help that). Neither is painful. Exam suggested. ...Read more

My son has a circle on his tongue, white-ish in the middle and red around it. Is this ringworm? His is 2 years old

No: Ringworm does not effect the tongue. What you are likely seeing is a patchy loss of some of the older tongue surface cells which happens from time to time. 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
