Your child is watering, his eyes are red, his eyelashes stuck ... it may be conjunctivitis or another infection, caused by an external aggression, like the sun, or a virus. Better to treat quickly.

What are the attacks that can be the eyes of the little ones?

  • The children's eyes are relatively fragile. Salt water, chlorine, too much exposure to the sun (photokeratitis) can cause redness. Not to mention foreign bodies: the grain of sand, dust, or worse a shot in the eye, which sometimes give rise to small visual disturbances. As for the infectious agents, they are favored by the dirty hands, too often brought to the eyes, whereas they are not washed regularly, or not at all.

How to treat conjunctivitis?

  • Conjunctivitis is an inflammation of the conjunctiva, a translucent membrane that covers the white of the eye. It manifests itself by several symptoms: either a redness showing a dilation of the vessels of the conjunctiva, or a permanent tear, associated with tingling and a little red eye. Most often it is an attack by the UV or a viral attack. Finally, the eye can be the seat of an infection visible by the yellowish secretions often accumulated at the edge of the eyelashes.
  • If it is a viral attack, the treatment involves the use of antiseptic ophthalmic eye drops.
  • If it is a bacterial infection, the prescription of an antibiotic is necessary for five to six days. In addition, conjunctivitis is particularly contagious, so it is important to impose strict hygiene on the entire family, especially hand washing.
  • As a precautionyou will also avoid putting your child in community for a few days.
