Welcome to Just Answer:

Irrigating the eye with water was a very good initial step. To further prevent worsening of irritation and resolve the redness, I suggest that the child use preservative free tear drop such as Refresh or Genteal tear drop 2-4 times day for 1 week. If the redness fails to resolve in 1 week or worsen at any time, I suggest that the child follow-up with the eye doctor for closer evaluation and possible prescription for Pataday eye drop.
