Hello there. I can understand your concern. Kindly stop using toba. Zenflox eye drops can be used thrice a day for such eye infection. No need to go to toba. Also, don't do any self medication experiment on the child. Take him to s ophthalmologist for further examination and treatment. You can find good ophthalmologist's near you using the practo app itself and take a appointment. Kindly don't delay it and take the child to a specialist as soon as possible. Best regards. Dr. Anil Kumar Jain.

Hi, redness can be there due to both infection and allergy too. Detail history is needed, like any discharge, watering from eyes, sticky eye lashes seen in the morning, all these signs lead to infection. If associated with frequent rubbing allergy can be the cause. Anyways as the baby is very young please see an qualified ophthalmologist for proper evaluation and advice on treatment. Hope this helps.
