Detailed Answer:
Thank you for contacting HCM with your health care concerns

Thank you for submitting images of your daughter's problem. She has a stye on the lower eyelid. This is caused by the glands in the eyelashes to become blocked and start an infection. The treatment is using warm compresses on the eye 6-10 times a day and the use of an antibiotic eye drop or ointment. You can go to any urgent care center and they will be able to prescribe the proper antibiotic. While waiting use the warm compresses to also help draw out the infection.

With treatment her eye should improve in a few days

I hope I answered your question. Please contact us again if you have any further questions

My 4 month old litt;e baby boy has an eye infection since birth. He has a green discharge from the eye and constant watering of the eye which is making the skin ont he side of his face very red and sore. He has had two courses of eye drops (antibiotics) which made no difference at all. Lately I noticed that the second eye is becoming infected. I am currently just washing it with sterile water and cotten wool as I have been from birth but still no improvement. Should I see the dr again?
