Viral infection : This is likely a viral infection and should subside on its own. However if the redness occurs with crusting or discharge, this could be bacterial and you'll need eye drops. Viral infections can occur with costochondritis which leads to rib and sternal pain which you described. The best remedy for that is NSAIDs, such as Ibuprofen which can help with both the pain and the inflammation.
