Is it irritating her? Painful, oozing, red or hot around it, is her vision ok?

if no to all of those things, I'd wait until monday and speak to the GP then.

I think you are pregnant?

Sounds like a good plan. I hope she is feeling better and you are getting some rest.

My ds had this when he was 10 and we were away on holiday,I took him to the gp and he prescribed some zovirax ointment,that soon cleared it up,

Not sure if the same but I had shingles in my eye, my eyelid was covered in spots. But it was the spots that went to the tip of my nose that damaged the eye not the ones on the actual lid. Something to do with the nerve endings if I remember. But shingles may work differently. Please get her checked if you are worried. My eye ended up irreversably damaged so dont take any chances.
