General & Family Physician 's  Response
Hello, welcome to HCM. The sore eye could be due to infection by a virus causing conjunctivitis. She should repeatedly wash her eye with clean water and avoid touching it. Take her to the doctor tomorrow in case she is not having any trouble with vision. Her abdominal pain could be due to parasitic infection whic is very common in this age group. She must undergo some blood tests and stool tests to confirm that. Wish her good health.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
She could be having conjunctivitis of her eye but it is not conclusive unless she gets a thorough examination by her Doctor. The stomach cramps could be because of a bowel infection and possible bad dietary habits. Encourage proper handwashing practice in your daughter. If she is passing loose stool, you can get it tested for infection. Keep her well fed and hydrated. Consult with her Paediatrician on her eye problem and non-relieving of her bowel spasms.
