5 month child eating rice, cereal and fruits. Had bumps on iris of eye. Is it an allergic reaction?

My 5 month old grandson has begun eating rice cereal and organic vegetables and fruit. He woke up with a little bump on the iris of each eye, and the inside corners of each eye are bloodshot. Allergic reaction? They have 2 cats, but no apparent problems previously. The pediatrician will see him in 2 days. Can you tell me what may be the cause? Is it okay to wait 2 more days? Thank you, Jeanne

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

Are these small bumps on iris or at the corners of eyes?

The bumps on iris are difficult to see by a person unless he is an expert or using magnifying lenses.

It is looking like inflammation of conjunctiva mostly from an allergic reaction or infection.

Keep the eyes clean by wiping with a clean sterile cotton clothe soaked in normal saline.

Weaning food to be started from the age of 6 months or as per the pediatrician advise.

Consult the doctor for examination and medication.

Hope I have answered your query.
