Hemorrhage: This is almost certainly a tiny hemorrhage from a conjunctival vessel. This gets into the space between the conjunctiva and the underlying sclera. Unless you are anti-coagulated, by the time you notice it the bleeding has stopped. But the small blood spot will spread widely over the next several days until your eye absorbs it. If the vision is fine and there is no pain, don't worry. ...Read more

Pain medicine like Ibuprofen is fine to take. If he is really bothered, an exam by an eye md is necessary. A dilating drop may be prescrib. ...Read more

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you, however, what you described suggests viral conjunctivitis. Wash your face and eyes with cool water and ascertain that your eyesight is not impaired. If your eyesight is impaired or the symptoms do not get better in two days, please consult a doctor.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex.
Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
