    Is there a bump or raised area on the lid? If so, it's a sty or stye? Nothing to worry about. Just take a warm washcloth and keep it on the eye for about two minutes at a time every once in awhile. Should go away within the day. If it doesn't go away within 3 days or so, I would say take her to the doctor because she could have conjunctivitis (pink eye) which will need to be treated with some drops.

    Source(s): Always messed with my eyes as a little one, so had pink eye and styes regularly-needless to say my parents were half crazy with me haha

    If this is not have been given any worse in 2 days, and that they at the instant are not swollen this is possibly not something to rigidity approximately. the only different element i will think of of is the start of a few form of eye an infection, like conjunctivitis, nonetheless you have not stated any discharge. it particularly is properly worth taking him to the healthcare expert to make optimistic.
