Pocket of fluid on white part of the eyeball, should I flush the eye ?

My daughter (10 yrs old) has been itching her eye the last couple of days. Seemed like allergies. Eye drops would help. She just came in from playing outside and the white part of her eye seems to have a pocket of clear fluid on it. Should we flush the eye ? No pain, just an itch.

Ophthalmologist Dr. Manish Malhotra's  Response
As far as itching is concerned and the complains you are giving it is typical of allergy which is common in summer season ,so you can visit a pediatric ophthalmologist who can prescribe you medications , & if it is allergy then this usually goes away by the age of 14 yrs

My 4 month old litt;e baby boy has an eye infection since birth. He has a green discharge from the eye and constant watering of the eye which is making the skin ont he side of his face very red and sore. He has had two courses of eye drops (antibiotics) which made no difference at all. Lately I noticed that the second eye is becoming infected. I am currently just washing it with sterile water and cotten wool as I have been from birth but still no improvement. Should I see the dr again?

I have angioedema, however, the redness, itching and discomfort I have been experiencing for the past week is growing worse and is only located on the outsides of both underarms. I take doxepin for the angioedema. I have been using three new prescription eye drops for cataract pre/post op: 1. Gatifloxacin 2. Lotemax and 3. Prolensa (my next op is 6/30/14 for my right eye). This new condition only began after my first cataract surgery on 6/16/14 and kept me awake most of last night. I am using neosporone on both sites. Thank you for any information you might offer. CW
