Red Rimmed Eyes Baby
Lid scrubs: It depends on the cause of the redness. A common cause is blepharitis, which is inflammation and blockage of the oil glands that line the eyelids. The best treatment is to apply warm compresses for a few minutes and then scrub along the lash line using baby shampoo. Repeat this once or twice daily. If the redness doesn't improve after 3-4 weeks, see your eye md to rule out another cause.
This is caused by blepharitis or dandruff of the eyelids. It is typically caused by a staph infection that is almost always curable with antibiotic ointment or eyedrops.

Blepharitis treatmen: The most common cause is blepharitis, commonly known as "granulated eyelids." this can go thru phases where the lids look quiet and other times red or inflammed. This is like having eczema, or dandruff, along the eyelids and leads to an inflammatory response that gives the redness. There are other causes, including dry eye and emotional upsets, i. E. Crying and rubbing the eye.
Blepharitis-dandruff: This is caused by blepharitis or dandruff of the eyelids. It is typically caused by a staph infection that is almost always curable with antibiotic ointment or eyedrops. Prevention is best accomplished by using one of the over the counter lid scrub formulas such as sterilid foam or occusoft cleansing medicated pads. No tears baby shampoo is an older treatment in scrubbing the closed eyelids.
Heat, age, hygiene: Blepharitis gets worse when its hotter, as people age and as people fail to keep their eyelids clean. Regular lid hygiene (instructed by your doctor) with occaisional topical antibiotics controls it. Bad cases and patients with rosacea (see your doctor for this diagnosis) are often given systemic antibiotics (pills you take by mouth) in addition to topical. Its never cured-its controlled!
What causes a recurring swollen eye in an infant. No redness or discharge. Swelling usually goes down the same day and has happened 3 times in 4 weeks?
My 2 week old infant girl has red swollen eye lid and redness under the eye w tiny acne looking bumps. I don't know what to do please help?
From childbirth: Often the pressure built up during the process of childbirth will cause small burst blood vessels in the white part of the eye in both the mother and the infant. This is totally benign and will resolve usually within a few weeks. If there is yellow discharge as well or crusting or it gets worse or doesn't clear, show your health care provider.See 1 more doctor answer

My baby has a slight temp and her eyes are puffy and a bit red. We gave her the min dosage of infant tylenol (acetaminophen). Mother was slightly ill this week.?
Sounds as if: Your baby is also becoming ill. Infants under the age of two months with a rectal temperature of 100.4 or higher should be emergently evaluated and not given Tylenol (acetaminophen). Older infants and children can be offered supportive and comfort care with pain/fever reducers until they have been evaluated by their pediatrician.
Is there anything we can do to help a baby's excema? My baby is 6mth and has redness only under her eyes. Maybe vaseline? Or cream?
Hydrocortisone 0.5%: But use sparingly as over use may thin the skin permanently on the thinner skin areas like the face and groin.
My 2.5 month baby started to rub her eyes all the time. She also have some redness on her lid. And she also has red vessel inside her eyes.
Eye allergy: Your baby may have developed an eye allergy probably caused by her stuffed animals, or blanket. Red vessels are blood vessels caused byher eye rubbing.. Remove any possible allergy cause and if necessary pick up some anti allergy eye drops and use twice daily
My wife had a pin eye. Now my 10month old baby got it. Is it medical emergency. He is normal otherwise. Mild redness both eyes. Any treatment needed?
This is not a: Medical emergency. However, at his age, he should be seen by his pediatrician. He may just need treatment with antibiotic drops, but some conjunctivitis (pink eye) is associated with ear infections, even without other symptoms. Since he can't tell you whether or not his ear hurts, he should be examined.
My child has eczema, have been using desonide on and off for couple weeks. Now eyes are red at times swollen. Is this likely due to allergies or is this probably a side effect? When will redness fade?
Allergies: Likely allergies. The redness will persist as long the offending agent is present unless your child is on an antihistamine -then it should get better fairly rapidly. An aside, topical steroids (i.e. Desonide) should not be placed around the eyes or mouth unless specifically directed by your physician.
