Cold & right eye redness

Having cold from past 4 days. SYMPTOMS: running nose, blocked nose, throat irritation, rough voice etc Also from past 2 days my right eye is slightly red. Visited a General physician doctor who ruled out conjunctivitis. He gave me medications for cold and told me the redness is because of the cold and asked me to come back after 5 days if the redness persists after the medication cycle. Please help me get a second opinion on what this redness is and should I consult an ophthalmologist. SYMPTOMS : eyes are slightly red, unable to open the eye completely, sometimes there is a yellow discharge, little wet when compared to left eye, right eyes feel tired when I keep staring
