Hi Dear I am Dr Bilal and I am an Ophthalmologist
Welcome to Health Care Magic
I would like to answer your question and your satisfaction is my goal .
As you have mentioned in your history that you have pain and swelling in the eyes along with sore throat. The presence of foreign body is unlikely . It can be allergy followed by sinusitis and orbital complication. You need to visit to Er as you may require antibiotics , anti- allergic and pain killer medicines .
I wish you a very speedy recovery.
Good Luck .
Best Regards .
