In brief: Keep trying.
You likely have not mastered the insertion and removal technique that was explained to you when you acquired the lenses.
Some redness would be expected if you have attempted to place the lenses on and have been unsuccessful after several attempts. Take a break and give it another go after your eyes are no longer irritated.
