What causes redness in eyes with swollen eyelids?

I have seen a doctor twice this week and diagnosed with pink eye. The second trip they gave me antibiotic drops. I have been on them 48 hours. My eye seems worse. The white of my eye is now jelly like, very red and lids are very swollen. Could I be reacting to the eye drops or is this a normal course for day 6 of pink eye?

Hi, I had gone through your question and understand your concerns.

You seems to suffer from allergic conjunctivitis , which usually takes time to improve , but there is worsening of symptoms , you need to consult an eye doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment
