Eye discharge: and redness is likely an infection which may require prescription medications, particularly since your daughter is showing systemic signs of infection including fever. Children with fever and pus from the eyes sometimes have an ear infection, which can be visualized with an otoscope at her pediatrician's office. ...Read more

The hemorrhage will clear in 5-10 days by itself. ...Read more
