Suggest remedy for swollen eyes

My eyes are very red and swollen and burning somewhat after I spent yesterday and today working with straw bails outside. I think I may have rubbed my eyes after touching the straw. My eyes also itch some. I am a red head and have a history of being sensitive. I just took an Allegra and have an ice pack on my eyes with some relief. No s/s of difficulty swallowing. Is there anything else I could do? I also used sterile eye gtts.

It seems from the history that you are having swollen eyes associated with burning and itching of the eyes.
This seems like inflammation of the eyes along with cold compression of eyes you need to use antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs.
Hence I advice you to consult your doctor for prescription of drugs.

Thank you
