Just a virus or something else?

DD 4.6 has had red rings around her eyes, she keeps rubbing them saying they are itchy. Her eyeballs aren't red at all or gunky so not conjunctivitis. She has dark bags under her eyes which look sunken, yet is well hydrated and sleeping fine. This has been going on about 4 days. Today she has had 2 poo's (TMI alert) first was water which was a black ish dark green colour, the second was dark green but solid and very thin like finger width maybe.
She has gone to bed this evening saying her eyes are sore and its hurts inside her head. She seems fine in her self. Any ideas? Likely to be just a little viral bug?

When you say she has red rings around her eyes, do you mean that the white of her eye is red around the iris, or that the surrounding skin is red?

Sorry, the surrounding skin. But it doesn't look dry or sore at all.

That could have been an interesting phone call grin
Nope, no temp at all. Well she doesn't feel warm and has been ok in her self so haven't actually checked, but usually quite obvious when she gets hot.
Poor thing just looks exhausted but can't see why. She is fairly pale at the moment too.
