My 20 month old son has suddenly developed a bright red dot or maybe a scratch beside the cornea? Pupil? The bigger circle. Sadly I am not sure of the name. It looks a bit blood shot underneath. It doesn't appear to be bothering him.
Should I get it looked at or wait it out?
Or could it indicate something other health condition?

my Dear,
Thanks for sending your query to us.
Your son looks like having a small scratch,leading to small sub conjunctival haemorrhage,which is painless,does not need any treatment and will resolve on its own in about a weeks time.
Just keep a watch and see that it keeps on reducing progressively and do not worry.
Do get back to me in case of any further query in this regard.
