Red skin: 7 years is a little old for a capillary hemanioma, do his eye seem to be red all the time, molluscum contagiousum is also possible. I would have to see a picture of this to make sure.

Red spot in the white area of my eye with very very slight haze in vision - no pain.

Hemorrhage: This is probably a seepage from a small vein in the conjunctiva which creates a very thin pool of blood in the normally closed space between the transparent conjunctiva and the underlying white sclera. It may increase in size due to spread (not due to further blood leakage) but will be absorbed in 3-10 days. If it persists after than see your ophthalmologist.

Have eye doctor look: At it. Depends where this dot is 'under your eye'. Is it on the eyball conjunctiva (white area?) Is it on the lid margin? Is it on the lower eyelid? It may be important to have it viewed under the slit lamp microscope to take a better look at it, and see what's going on.

Why do I see a red spot when I close my eyes?

Why do I see a red spot when I close my eyes?

After images: After we close our eyes, especially in brightly lit environments, we will see images of what we were looking at for a short period of time. This is due to the fact that our retinal pigments have been stimulated by the lights and take some time to recover from those lights. You are noticing the residual images from this.

Broken vessel: A bright red spot on the white of the eye with no other symptoms is usually a subconjunctival hemorrhage otherwise known as a broken blood vessel just under the outer surface of your eye. It is not dangerous and will resolve on it's own in a few days to a week in most cases.

Woke up and out of no where there is a huge red spot in the white of my eye. No pain and can see normal. Is concern needed?

Probably not.: This sounds like a sub conjunctival hemorrhage, a broken blood vessel underneath the thin transparent membrane over the white of the eye. It will not cause any permanent problem and will go away by itself in 2-3 weeks. You should have it checked by your doctor though just to be sure this is what it is.

Broken blood vessel: Most likely you had a subconjunctival hemorrhage or broken blood vessel on the surface of the eye. These can happen if you lifted something heavy or if you were straining. Also, a hard sneeze or cough can cause that. It does not damage the eye or cause any problems with the vision. If it happens again you should see your ophthalmologist.

How to get rid of a red spot in the white of my eye?

How to get rid of a red spot in the white of my eye?

Timing?: Depends on the cause of the red spot. If it is a bruise (subconjunctival hemorrhage), it may take about 2 weeks to go away. These are generally benign and self limited, and often a result of minor trauma, such as rubbing your eyes. If it is something else and has persisted for awhile, i'd recommend an exam to reassure that it doesn't require a different treatment.
