Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you, however, what you described suggests viral conjunctivitis. Wash your face and eyes with cool water and ascertain that your eyesight is not impaired. If your eyesight is impaired or the symptoms do not get better in two days, please consult a doctor. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
