Detailed Answer:
Welcome to Health care magic

I am Dr. Dadapeer K an ophthalmologist and I answer health problems related to eye.

It seems from the history that your son is having redness of skin around the eyes following swimming.
This indicates probable inflammation of the eye or periocular skin around the eye.
It is better to use antibiotic eye drops to prevent infection.

Please write back to me for further questions.
