   It seems that you are having a severe allergic reaction. For this you need to -
- take oral anti-histaminic like benadryl/cetrizine
- apply cold compresses to the eye like ice or cotton dippen in cold water on the eyelids
- anti-allergy eye drops like zaditor (available over the counter) in the pharmacy
If the eyes do not improve with the above treatment then you need to consult an Ophthalmologist.
