My eyes are red and they hurt and itch what can I do help besides eye drops?
Red eyes, whether itchy or painful, should be evaluated by a health care provider if it is lasting more than a day or so. You don't say whether you have known allergies which can cause eye irritation (this time of year dust or mold is the likely cause, or animal dander), whether you are a contact lens wearer (we frequently see abrasions and other corneal problems from lenses), a makeup user (mascara can cause allergies) or whether you have had a recent upper respiratory infection (conjunctivitis can cause these symptoms). There are other less common problems that can be serious as well.
