Thank you for the information,
Blood in the white area of the eye is usually due to bleeding in the subconjunctival space.
In first 24 hours it may increase in size, then gradually diminishes.
Usually no treatment is required.
It gets absorbed on its own within 1-2 weeks.
Trauma, straining, cough, high blood pressure, bleeding disorder etc. can be precipitating factors.
If it increases or affects vision, you need to contact doctor to find out the other causes of bleeding,

You can use artificial tear for soothing the irritation.
I hope this information helps.
