Brief Answer:
It seems like inflammation of the eye.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thank you for the follow up question.

The symptoms of redness, itching, irritation. swelling of sclera and red spot usually indicate inflammation of sclera or episclera called as episcleritis.

This requires treatment by the use of antiinflammatory eye drops. I prefer to use antiinflammatory eye drops like flurbiprofen.

Hope I have answered your question and the information is helpful to you.

Brief Answer:
It usually follows as a result of allergy.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thank you for the follow up question.

It is usually idiopathic in nature and exact underlying cause is not known.
Most of these cases are caused by allergy.

A single episode of episcleritis does not require any tests or evaluation, hence no need to worry.

Hope I have answered your question and the information is helpful to you.

Thank you
