Cold & redness in one eye
Having cold from 4 days. SYMPTOMS : running nose, throat irritation, heads feels heavy. Along with cold having pinkness in right eye from past 3 days. There was frequent yellows discharge from eye the first day but not anymore. I visited a general physician doctor who ruled out conjunctivitis. He told the pinkness in eye is because of cold and gave medication for 5 days(montair lc and hifenac p). Asked me come back after 5 days if the redness persists. Need a second opinion on what this slight redness in eye is and if I should consult an ophthalmologist? SYMPTOMS : slight redness in right eye, no pain, cannot open my eye completely, eyes are little moist compared to the left eye.

It seems to be allergic conjunctivitis as it is associated with cold. Please refer to an ophthalmologist dear.
