What are the eye infections of children?


If the white of your child’s eye and the inside of his lower lid become red, he probably has a condition called conjunctivitis.
Also known as “pink eye” or “red eye,” this inflammation usually signals an infection but may be due to other causes, such as an irritation, an allergic reaction or (rarely) a more serious illness.

It’s often accompanied by tearing and discharge, which is the body’s way of trying to heal or remedy the situation.
