My daughter has chickenpox , today one papule appeared on white part of her left eye , i noticed it when she was was looking to the side . a little red around it.
Is it normal?
Thanks for your Question
Chickenpox is caused by Varicella-zoster virus which can also affect the eye. Children with ocular involvement complain of redness, irritation, tearing, photophobia and lid swelling. It can affect the eyelid, conjunctiva, cornea and uvea.
Most of the time it heals be itself without any ocular complications but your kid should be assessed by an ophthalmologist because sometimes steroid eye drops is required during the healing process.
