2 Double whammies: Dry Eye syndrome with contact lens wear is a recipe for disaster. Then wearing mascara and eye makeup that flakes/ particles can get in the eyes, under the contact lens, and irritate the cornea and conjuctiva. See your eye doctor soon to discuss.

I suffer from allergic cold very often. Continuous sneezing, water from eyes and nose. How to treat & prevent?. Allergic to sulpher drugs as well.
Lips have always been swollen in the morning, but now they continue throughout the day. Also, have bloated stomach and red eyes in the morning.?
Red Eyes/Swollen Lip: You may well have a hidden food allergy or a gluten sensitivity. I would make an appointment with your doctor and discuss your symptoms with a focus on identifying the underlying cause of the sensitivity. If it is a gluten sensitivity, this can be approached by adjusting your diet, as can a hidden food allergy by documenting what you eat and narrowing down the offending food(s). Good luck! ...Read more
