Question: hi
I would like to know about my sons eye irritation. It seems like it feels like there is a pressure within his eye and almost feels like his eyes are dry. He is only five and he is always rubbing his right eye, which leaves like a purple lining all around the eye.

Brief Answer:
Might be Allergic conjuctivitis

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
It might be allergic conjunctivitis.

Some common medical conditions indicated by the symptoms dry eyes, itching or burning, red (bloodshot) eyes and sore or burning eyes are Allergic reaction, Hay fever, and Indoor allergens.

Sleep deprivation, smoke, wind exposure, dust exposure may all cause this type of allergy.
I suggest you to look out the causative agent or see the allergist or opthalmologist if problem persists.

Hope i helped you.
