Hello again

Thanks for uploading the image.

No, this is not just a red eye (Conjunctivitis).

This is likely to be an intradermal nevus. It can be observed without any intervention. If it changes color and size significantly then it should be removed surgically and examined microscopically.

Wishing you best of health

Thanks
