Eye Allergy Relief Drops made my eye red!

I have a problem with itchy eyes, usually due to seasonal allergies I think, but also to dust when I'm doing a thorough cleaning in the house. Well, I cleaned my bedroom last weekend, and then my eyes got itchy like they usually do from the dust, except the next morning I woke up and my right eye was very red and more itchy than usual. It stayed itchy all day but the redness went away eventually. That night I woke up at about 2 AM, and my eye was so itchy I almost couldn't stand it. And of course I couldn't rub it because that just makes it worse. It took about 15 minutes to fall back to sleep, but when I woke up in the morning, it wasn't itchy at all! But then it started itching again slowly after that, and both eyes have been itchy ever since. I usually suffer through it, but I decided to try some allergy relief eye drops. The first time I used them, they made my eyes sting a little (though the directions say it may make your eyes "tingle" at first). The itching never went away, and then a couple hours later I looked in the mirror and I have a red spot in my left eye that wasn't there before (when I look closely it's an area with a bunch of those tiny capillaries).
Anyway, has this happened to anyone before with the drops? The kind I got says it contains Pheniramine Maleate and Naphazoline Hydrochloride. Is there maybe another kind I could try?

Some people have problems with eye drops. Maybe you should just take an antihistamine before cleaning your room next time and the flush out your eye with an eye wash or saline solution.
