What could be wrong if my left eye is red!  it looks like sore eyes and is a bit itchy but not so teary! could this mean an infection or anything?

Could be infection: A viral eye infection, which is contagious, can cause one or both eyes to be very red, itch, swell, and tear (usually a clear discharge). The symptoms may get worse quickly. Cool compresses can help, and an eye doctor may provide eye drops to help symptomatically. A broken blood vessel on the eye surface can look terrible, but is usually harmless. Many things can cause a red eye, so get an exam. ...Read more

One of my eyes has discharged to redness or itchy. is this allergies? i have sore throat and congested.

Possibly: Allergic conjunctivitis causes redness, watering and itching. The conjunctiva (inside of your eyelid) can have a cobblestone appearance. Sinus congestion is also common.

Viral URI causes sore throat, congestion, conjunctivitis ...Read more
