Thanks for sending your query to us.
Your daughter seems to be having conjunctivitis.
There are a few things you have to do.Keep her eyes clean.
put antibiotic drops 3to 4 times a day.Tobramycin is the anti biotic of choice,or ofloxacin eye dops can be used.
You can put another anti biotic eye ointment can be put in the eye at night.
What is important that every bodyelse in the house has to keep a level of huygine and not to touch their eyes as their hands may also beinfected.
This will take 3to 4 days to resolve.
please do get back to me in case of any further query in this regard.
