Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Red, swollen, and choked eyes are signs of inflammatory eye disease that attacks the conjunctival lining, called conjunctivitis. This disease can be caused by germ infections (viruses, bacteria, fungi or parasites) and allergic reactions. You and your family may have a bacterial infection. Transmission occurs due to direct contact with the patient's hand or indirect contact with objects contaminated with the patient's hand.
We recommend that you and your family consult directly with the nearest doctor so that you can be examined directly by a doctor. The doctor will give eye drops that contain antibiotics and anti-inflammatory if it is true according to the doctor who conducted the examination due to bacterial infection. Treatment must be done on all family members to avoid transmission of repeated infections.
Meanwhile, all sufferers should not rub their sick eyes. Also use temporary protective glasses until the complaint improves.
Thus hopefully useful.
