Patient :It's 4am. I got woken up by a severe burning sensation in my right eyeball, but and eyelid. So bad, I had to use soap and water to wash it out; it's tolerable discomfort right now. So, my eye is bloodshot red, and my eyelid swollen. I had severe eye allergies last week, but it was itchy, it never never burned. Tonight it's like someone put jalapeños on and on my eye. What is this?
Symptoms: Severe burning of eye and eyelid, bloodshot eye, Chest congestion
