Rinse eyes: You may have an irritant and contact inflammation or an allergic reaction. Wash your face and rinse your eyes with lukewarm water. Allergy eye drops are available over the counter. For your lip irritation consider an eczema lotion, and please follow up with your PCP. If there are any vision changes, please see a physician right away.
