Hello there, you seem to have developed some kind of allergy. Please stop rubbing your eyes. Easier said than done I know, but rubbing only causes the allergy to increase. Instead you can try washing your eye with cold water or try cold compresses. Take a clean cloth, soak it in cold water and keep over your eyes closed. It will give you some relief. If it persists, see your eye care professional as you might need some medications.
