Your daughter's red eye problem may not be due to an infection of her eye. She certainly has not responded to using an antibacterial eye ointment She may have an eye dryness problem due to her sleeping with her eyelids not fully closed. It would really be best to take her to be seen by an eye specialist,an ophthalmologist
