Brief Answer:
Possibly due to an eye infection.

Detailed Answer:

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. I have checked the attached images. You possibly have an eye infection. A chemical reaction or a cleaning solution could contribute, but is less likely.

Continue to take Claritin (Loratadine) for the next few days, but you also need to put an antibiotic drop like Ciplox (Ciprofloxacin) drops one drop in each eye four times daily for the next 5 days.

And most importantly, you must consult your local doctor/PCP/GP at the earliest.

Let me know if I could help further.
