There, I have a question in relation to my 13 months old

Resolved Question:

Hi there, I have a question in relation to my 13 months old daughter eye infection. One eyelid is red and swollen-she could barely open her eye this morning. Mid last week she had temperature for three consecutive afternoons, followed by a red spotty rash on her face and tummy. The rash disappeared within 24 hours and now we have the eye infection. As I could not get an appointment to see the GP today-booked in for tomorrow morning- I am a bit worried. I gave her antibiotic eyedrops as there was some discharge and the antibiotic eyedrops-fucithalmic-were previously prescriped by the GP for a similar eye infection.
Many thanks,
Mum to Ruby
