My Dear,
Thanks for sending your query to us.
This looks like a small hemorrhage.If so then she will not have any symptom.This is supposed to be asymptomatic.
This resolves on its own.Does not require any treatment.
For her previous issue of picking in the eye,lubricant eye drops may be useful.
Please do get back to me in case of any further query in this regard.
