Eye infection and swollen gums, is there any link ?

I m sulabh shrestha(male) and 23 yrs old and 5 9 taller. Recently i got an eye infection. The eye lids are swollen and the cornes is red and dry. along this my gums at the corner is also swollen which had made me difficult to open my mouth and the area around it is also swollen. When I went to the GP, the nurse just told me to go to the dentist and optician. They didn t prescribe me any medicine. So, I directly went to the pharmacy and bought eye drops but its not working. So, now what can i do to cure my eye and gums?

First wash ur hand well with medicated soap.then clean ur eye with warm distilled water and a clean cotton swab for few minute.Make sure that u use a different swab for each eye to prevent the spread of the infection,Repaet this treatment once every hour as it will reduce the inflammation and can also do this by placing ice cubess tied with in a clean white cloth on your most avoid working on computers watching tv and wearing make up.
