noticed people mentioning ringworm and tick bite...
I don't think so... I've had both, more than once, generally ticks to bite and vacate, they stay put and eat till they burst! Typically they will latch onto places where they are hidden beneath hair or clothing. Thats no tick bite IMO.
As for the ringworm... (not actually a worm), it is typically a perfect circle of red spots... not an oval shape. I know, seems picky but, thats how I always had it and that is how other have always described it, doctors and people infected by it.
I still you this is something more of a skin irratation. Perhaps your kiddo could have rubbed something above her eye during sleep. Or maybe she had an irratation in her eye and rubbed it for a long period of time while in her car seat, laying down for a nap, etc...? If not, maybe allergy or reaction if on both eyes. If only one eye then probably not.
