My eye has redness and itching,plus it swelling and a little painful.
It's swelling, I think you need to get eye drops from an eye doctor, the swelling doesn't just go away easy.

Infection of external bacterial or allergic reaction to some stimuli will make your conjunctivae (a transparent covering of the eyes) inflamed. Based on its causes, it’s easy to understand the symptoms of pink eye.

The common symptoms of bacterial pink eye include:

  •  Redness, itchiness or a gritty feeling in one or both eyes
