Maybe: Redness around the cornea overlying the white of the eye is a non-specific finding. It could be a sign of bacterial or viral conjunctivitis but it could be a lot of other issues. You should see an eye doctor if it worsens or do not resolve. You could try artificial tears in the meantime.

Red eyes: Your description of your symptoms indicates some significant inflammatory problem in your eyes.See your ophthalmologist for an exam.
