Could be allergic: If the crusting increases, or the eye is painful and draining, it may be a pink eye.
only bacterial conjunctivitis needs treatment. You could try an OTC product called Zaditor (ketotifen) eye drops.

Should I be concerned about redness in the corner of eyes?

Should I be concerned about redness in the corner of eyes?

Redness around eyes: Redness around the eyes is usually due to irritation, most commonly from rubbing of the eyes. As a first step, I suggest that you try lubricating tear drops. It can also be due to an infection of the eyelids themselves. In that case, I suggest that you see your eye doctor for appropriate treatment. ...Read more

Allergic eyes: Sounds like his eyes are either irritated or he may have allergies. I would suggest trying claritin (loratadine) each night or benedryl three times daily for a few days and see if his eyes improve. ...Read more

I've developed red spots on outer corner of my eyes from tugging on them to do my eyeliner. I no longer tug on them, what can help to remove the redness?

Leave them alone.: Your description suggests that irritation from frequent pulling the area is the cause. If you stop touching the area, it will likely recover by itself in a week or two. But if problem persists, you should consult your doctor. ...Read more

I have suddenly just got some redness with a lump on my right eye on inside corner and im not sure why?

I have suddenly just got some redness with a lump on my right eye on inside corner and im not sure why?

Probably stye: This sounds like it is in the substance of the eyelid. If so it is a stye, a blocked gland which is now becoming infected. If it is on the eye itself or the vision is affected you should see an ophthalmologist tomorrow. If it is a stye, you can treat it for a while with frequent very warm packs (four times a day or more) which will usually take care of it. ...Read more

I have a pink/redness in the corner of my eye and it was not there a couple of days ago, and my eye burns a bit. Could it possibly be pink eye?

Usually not: Pink eye in general means that you have a severe virus that causes significant itchiness. Most people however with a little bit of eye redness have an unstable tear film from blepharitis. See Eyedoc2020.blogspot.

Redness at the corner of the outside of my eyes not at tear ducts. My allergist noticed it yesterday but I blew it off. Now wondering what cause is?

Transient or. ..: If the redness goes away in a few days, I won't be worrying over it. If it is persistent but does not itchy or hurt, I won't lose sleep over it either. Do your eyes tear frequently? ...Read more

Sounds like you are: Going to need to see your eye doctor to get some prescription eye drops for your conjunctivitis as soon as possible to make sure you don't have 'pink eye'. That's contagious if so. Keep your hand and face towels separate from everyone else's. I assume your parents are tapping as 6 YO's are too young to bE on health tap. May need to see the pediatrician first. They know what to do. Call them now. ...Read more

So, I had a stye in the upper corner of my right eye and it caused redness in that eye, should I also be having redness in the other eye?

No: If you are experiencing redness in the "other" eye, the infection may have been transferred.

The corner of my eye has a bit of redness on the white part of the eyeball. When I blink, it feels like there is a bruise. Don't hurt when I touch it.

May need an exam: Some people can get a self-limited episode of inflammation on the sclera (white of the eye) with a patch of redness called episcleritis. There may be a small nodule as well, and the condition generally resolves without treatment. However, if the redness or pain increases rather that decreases, get it checked as soon as possible. ...Read more

Exam needed: Without a proper examination, your child cannot be properly diagnosed. The irritated red and itchy eyes could be allergies but given the nature of a cough and a fever it seems more likely that the child has an infection going on. It is most appropriate that you seek medical attention for the childcare. ...Read more

Can a stye cause redness in the corner of your eye and yellow discharge?

Can a stye cause redness in the corner of your eye and yellow discharge?

Yes, if it's draining: The plugged meibomian gland has like a buttery consistency when draining that could be light yellow if draining, which can cause inflammation all around it producing redness temporarily. Use the warm compresses to help it along and leave them on for at least 5-10 minutes with your eyes closed 4 times a day. Use lubricating drops of saline drops. See your eye doctor too! ...Read more
