Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
while her eye may not be involved if the white part of her eye looks white, there is the possibility that there is ocular pathology going on.
If just her eyelid is involved then cold compresses and erythromycin ophthalmic ointment to the affected area 3x/day is all that is needed.
That being said, she needs to see an ophthalmologist to make sure the globe itself is not infected. Undiagnosed zoster keratitis or uveitis can cause serious ocular damage.
Also, although you may have already been told this, do not give your daughter any aspirin or aspirin containing products due to the slight risk of Reye's syndrome.
Does this answer your question to your satisfaction?
