HI,Problem of your daughter is related to high grade fever with convulsions.During fever capillaries become fragile & platelets count decreases.These two factors cause leaking of blood in eyes.she is having subconjunctival haemarrage.Don't worry.Following treatment is advised,
1-Get platelets count done.
2-Keep the fever down.
3-put Mezol eye drop thrice daily
4-Do cold fomentation with ice cubes.
5-Moxicip eye drops 4 times daily.
6-Tab vitamin C 500 mg twice daily.
7-Don't rub eyes.
Continue this treatment for 10 days,hope she will be fine.
