Yes: Some egg allergic individuals are able to tolerate well cooked or baked egg, but have issues with under cooked or raw egg. There is no specific recommendations on how well to cook eggs, and care needs to be taken. I would recommend evaluation by a board certified allergist. For the Flu shot- The amount of allergen in the vaccine in minimal, unless you reacted in the past get the vaccine

Probably Not: Your current symptoms are not likely due to your past actions. More likely your work in front of the PC is taking it's toll. I recommend periodic breaks from looking at the screen. Artificial tears and eye wetting drops can be helpful as well. Make sure you have good lighting in the room and if symptoms continue, seek evaluation with an ophthomologist

Could be allergies: The symptoms you are having can be due to allergies and allergies to feathers can trigger them, but there are many allergens that could be responsible. You should be tested by a board certified allergist who can take a detailed history and test for what may be triggering your symptoms. They will also be able to prescribe a treatment protocol to decrease your symptoms.
