Brief Answer: Exclude ocular telangiectasia Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXXXX Welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thank you for uploading the eye pictures of your son which does not look like classical conjunctivitis. In conjunctivitis, the white portion of the eye gets red, and is commonly due to a viral infection. The images are not close-up views, so it is not possible to exclude telangiectasia, which is a dilated blood vessel. Ocular (eye) telangiectasia is NOT normal, so please see an eye specialist to ensure this is not the case. Standard anti-histamine eye drops will not be effective on dilated blood vessels. Also, please mention other features such as: 1. Development milestones 2. Speech 3. Walking 4. Feeding disturbances, if any, in your child. Thanks, Best Wishes.

Brief Answer: Ataxia telagiectasia needs to be excluded Detailed Answer: Hello, I am still not sure if you have visited your Ophthalmologist and whether the vessel was confirmed to be a telangiectasia or not. If yes, you need to get your son seen by a paediatric neurologist to exclude possibility of this condition. I am thinking of the diagnosis of ataxia telangiectasia, but cannot be sure given the limited information. Best Wishes.
