It seems from the history that your child had injury following which redness developed. This is probably trauma induced conjunctivitis or sub conjunctival hemorrhage.
The treatment is by antibiotic eye drops for conjuncitvitis and by simple observation for subconjunctival hemorrhage.
Since your child is of school going age ciplox eye drops can be safely used.
Thank you
