is it possible to get a yeast infection if you've had a vagina one, and may have touched your eyes without thinking to wash hands after applying medication? i can't decide if severe random allergies or eye infection. no puss. just red and extremely itchy.

Unlikely: You likely have allergic conjunctivitis especially if you have nasal symptoms as well and the symptoms are seasonal in nature. Try antihistamine eye drop. If not helpful, consider an allergy consult.
