Blepharitis: You should see your eye doctor right away to see if your symptoms are caused by an infection, dermatitis, an inflammation of the skin around the eye, or blepharitis, a condition where you can build up crusting and/or mucous around the eyes due to dysfunctional glands in the eyelids. The condition you have will determine the proper treatment.See 1 more doctor answer

Blepharitis?: It could be a local inflammation of your eyelid, termed blepharitis. Pl see attached link for additional details. You may also have allergies whch can have eye-related symptoms.

Eyedrops: Check to see if you are using a new skin product, as this can cause a reaction like this. If this has just popped up spontaneously, you can try using artificial tears 4x/day in both eyes. If that doesn't work, there is a OTC drop: 'Zatidor', which works well. You can also use Benadryl, (diphenhydramine) but this will cause drowsiness. If these therapies do not work, consider seeing an eye doctor.

Viral conjunctivitis: Is the most likely cause of your symptoms. The flu virus got into your eyes. If your vision is not affected then just keep the eyes clean and comfortable with chilled artificial tears (but not "get the red out" drops). Change your pillowcase and towels frequently and wash your hands often since you are contagious until the redness is gone.See 1 more doctor answer
