My 6 mo. old daughter scratched her eye I think, it started looking real red and tears were coming out a bit, and she will cry for 5min then she is ok for a little bit, then she crys again and then she is fine again, we have repeated this cycle 3 times. She has been ok for about 15min now, however, now that I have gotten a good look at her eye, I can see what looks like a nice little scratch from the white of her eye to the iris area. I think she may have done this when she was rubbing her eye on accident.
Is this an injury I need to take her into the hospital for or can I wait to bring her to the doctor tomorrow?
