Hello
It seems from the history that you are having infection of the eyes with symptoms of itching, swelling and red eyes.
This indicates acute infection of the eyes in the form of acute conjunctivitis.
The treatment of the condition is by use of antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs.
Hence I advice you to consult your doctor for confirmation of diagnosis and treatment accordingly.

Thank you
