Talk to the chemist when you go in,It could just be hayfever although if you need it fixed quick I'd recommend going to the opticians first for a full prognosis.
He may give you eyedrops or tell you what to buy for them.
Hope this helps.Congrats on graduating
GP. Opticians check eye sight not eye infections. It is tricky though.
I had something similar which was an allergic reaction to a horsefly bite. My doctor gave me some medicine which did the job in a day or so
Sounds like an allergic reaction; wash the eye area well. If it continues, see an ophthalmologist.
