2 yo scratched eye lid. Today the small scratch on lid spread across lower lid by lashes. Looks like red eyeliner under lid. Not bothering him. Help?

In brief: Watch

Keep it clean.
Perhaps antibiotic ointment to prevent infection.Otherwise just watch for a problem.

In brief: Scratched eye lid

You can use an antibiotic ointment like neosporin under the eye lid.
