Thank you for the additional information. There are many things which and cause puffy red eyes.In your case, this may be related to your sinus infection. The nasal sinuses are intimately related to the surface of yours. An infection of the sinus or nasal cavity can easily spread to the eyes and cause a conjunctivitis. Most cases of conjunctivitis are caused by virus, in which case no treatment is needed because it should get better on its own.If it is caused by a bacteria, then you'll need antibiotics. It appears you are already taking antibiotic drops -- tobramycin.
Allergies are a consideration, especially with the itchings. Most people will already know that they have seasonal allergies. From what you have told me, it is most likely due to the sinus infection.
For symptomatic relief, you can try cool compresses and chill artificial tears. If it is worsen or does not improve, then an eye exam is recommended.If you have eye pain, decrease vision then you should talk to your doctor promptly and get a referral for an eye exam.
considering that is allergy related what do you reccomend?
You can take an over the counter allergy medicine such as benadryl or claritin. Zaditor is a good over the counter allergy eye drop.
