If that boy has STD like Molluscum contagiosum or warts it is possible it can spread to your skin as well. Before writing this question I hope you have thoroughly washed your eyes in luke warm water as soon as he touched faeces in your eyes. Many diseases can spread to eyes causing inflammation and conjunctivitis. Be careful next time. If any pain, burning sensation, watering of eyes, discharge from eyes, consult your Ophthalmologist.
