    Eye drops or ointment can relieve your symptoms. There are two categories of eye drops and ointments. They are over-the-counter eye drops and prescription eye drops. If your symptoms are not severe, you can choose the over-the-counter eye drops because they are cheaper and more convenient. But if your symptoms got worse or persist for many days, you must consult your eye doctor for suggestions. They will determine the cause and severity of the problem and then give you the best treatment.

    We know that allergies can cause eye symptoms such as itchiness, redness, and swollen eyes. We can use antihistamine eye drops to treat itching. Decongestant eye drops (whitening eye drops), which contain vasoconstrictors can eliminate your red eyes. But for long-term consideration, I don't recommend you to use this kind of drop because it will force you to use them more and more in the future. I think there may be other causes for your red eyes. Is there any possibility that it is caused by tiredness, dryness or lack of sleep. If it does, lubricating drops can help to solve your problem. But the best way is to see an eye doctor for prescription eye drops.
