  • I'm gonna go with don't pop it. The eye area is very tender and that could hurt her a lot. It's probably just a stye (sp?). Just put a warm wash cloth on it for a couple of minutes several times during the day. If it gets bigger or looks like it's getting worse then call your dr. Or you may just want to go ahead and give the dr's office a call anyway-seeing how I don't have M.D. after my last name =)! Good Luck.

  • I wouldn't pop anything on an infant!

    It could be a stye. Is it on the eyelid? Is it in the eye on the red part? If you are concerned, take her to the doc. My cousin got a peice of popcorn stuck in his eye at about 10 year old. The skin grew over the kernal and it looke like a small cyst just inside his eye. THey were freaked and took him to a specialist who removed it and discovered what it was! It's possible something similair happened or that it's just a harmless bump.

  • no, leave it be. Unless it is causing her pain, it will take care of itself. If you think its causing her pain, then a warm washrag every couple hours will help it pop.
