Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
are you available to chat?
hello are you there?
yes. I am here. Where, in relation to her lower eyelids/eyeball is this redness? Is it just red or is it rough/scaly/thickened etc?
its where you get eye bags, it is like a red line there, i thought maybe it could be due to tiredness, but I am not sure
its on both sides
does it seem to bother her?
also, has it been present her entire life?
no, i dont think so... it bothers me though...cos its quite bright
is she there with you now?
cant really say.....could be 6 months but it comes and goes
yes she is
could she be lacking anything?
ok, can you pull down her lower lids with your index finger....just gently, and see if the inside of her lower lid (conjunctiva) looks normal to you?
yes it looks normal
I do not believe she has any ocular pathology going on at this time. I also don't believe this is a sign of anything she would be lacking in her diet etc. If she is being breast fed that supplies everything she needs along with the solids she is taking in. And any diet that a concerned mom such as yourself would be giving her would also cover all these bases :o)
so you think its nothing to worry about?
It might be worth having her peds MD have a look at it since it is so brightly red right now, but I don't think you need to be overly concerned
what is peds MD?
I've had 5 kids and, at times they've had weird things....and they all turned out OK (for the most part )
too long of a word to type....
Ok i may take her to the doctors first. thanks for your help
