Hello dear..
The symptoms as mentioned in your post indicate that you might be having irritant contact dermatitis.
And symptoms limited to only one eye can be attributed to the fact that some part of the body are more sensitive than others.

Management includes:
1. Application of topical steroid like mometasone.
2. Antihistamine preparations like cetrizine to provide symptomatic relief.

If still there is persistence of symptoms, it will be better to consult a Dermatologist & get a proper examination done.

Wishing you a Good Health. Let me know if I need to clarify further.
Thanks & take care.
