My dear,
Thanks for sending your query to us.

I've seen the image.

This is conjunctivitis. Clean the eye with cotton soaked in XXXXXXX warm water.

Gentamicin eye drop 0.3% or Moxifloxcin eye drop can be put in 4 to 5 times a day .
Zoxan or Neosporine eye ointment can be put in the eye at bed time.This should resolve in a short while.

Any further query in this regard please do get back to me.
