Expert:  DoctorAnil replied 14 days ago.

Sorry for the late reply and inconvenience.

Thanks for all this additional information.

I understand your concern.

And it’s my first privilege to pay attention and provide you with suggestions to relieve your discomfort/ worry.

Well as you describe, You should use OTC Zaditor eye drops 2 times a day alternately with OTC Systane eye drops.
Apply cool compresses on your eyes and clean your eyes with soft cotton balls soaked in cool water.

Take OTC Motrin and Claritin.

If the pain would persist then see an ophthalmologist
