Accidently poked in the eye, eye irritation, hoovers. Allergic reaction?

My daughter was accidentally poked in inner corner of eye yesterday. And today her eye is irritated with eye hoovers all over it. I cleaned up XXXXX and that has relieved some of the irritation. But the eye boogers keep coming.the friend that poked her had been playing with their cats and dogs. Could it be scratched or a bad allergy reaction or both?

Diabetologist 's  Response

Any eye injury should be taken seriously.
Especially the cornea.
Cornea is a very delicate structure and our vision depends upon it.
If the injury is established then is very difficult manage because it becomes permanent and the ability to regenerate to normalcy is unlikely.
The contamination may be high due to the source of the injury was in contact with animals.
Take the help of an Ophthalmologist.
