Thank you for your query at DoctorSpring.com
It could be due to allergies/ infective in nature.
If you have associated cough and cold it is secondary to allergies. So olopatadine eye drops 2-3 time daily will be helpful along with artificial tear drops like Refresh.
If you develop a small swelling and pain subsequently then you can start Ciplox eye drops to be given 3-4 times daily and apply Neomycin ointment on the swelling.
If it is due to an infection the swelling will develop in a day's time and there will be crusting. So observe for this symptoms.
Hope this was helpful,
Feel free to discuss further,

Sorry for the late reply ,
The fresh lesionsI see can be herpetic , you need to visit an eye centre , so that they can see and start the treatment, its important to show.

Patient replied :

Thank you doctor. It seems a lot better now. I have used artificial tear drops and since Olopatadine is given by prescription only, my phamacist gave me Zaditor 3 times daily. the itching and pmples are much better, Do I have to continue on these eye drops untill the pimples are completely gone? Do yoou suggest other medications?
Thank you so much!!! YOU ARE GREAT!!!

Based on the severity it will take 5-7 days for complete disappearance of the allergies.
You can stop after that.
