Welcome to Just Answer:

It appears that you are experiencing the symptoms of moderate to severe ocular allergic conjunctivitis. The most effective over the counter eye drop for this is Zaditor eye drop 4 times daily for about 1 week, in addition to warm compresses twice daily. If the symptoms fails to significantly resolve after 3-4 days, then I suggest that you follow-up with your eye doctor for closer evaluation to exclude viral or bacteria conjunctivitis.

However, if you also have sinus congestion with yellowish/greenish discharge, I would suggest that you follow-up with your doctor for closer evaluation for oral antibiotics such as Augmentin and and/or topical eye antibiotics such as Tobramycin or Vigamox 4 times daily for 1 week. If viral conjunctivitis, then your eye doctor would likely start you on Tobrax or Zylet eye drop for about 1 week.
