Brief Answer: May be conjunctivitis Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for consulting HealthcareMagic! Based on clinical decription, it sounds like conjunctivitis which may be allergic, viral, bacterial or fungal. However, there are certain other things like keratitis, scleritis, episcleritis etc which need to be ruled out as well. Correct diagnosis occurs once we do physical examination. Anyhow, I suggest you few measures to be followed as there is little suspicion of conjunctivitis. Wash your hands before and after touching the eyes or face, and do not share towels, linens, pillows, handkerchiefs etc to prevent spread. But, first the confirmation of diagnosis is needed and visiting your family physician is necessary. You may need antibiotic or antihistamine eye drops depending on the cause.
