Thanks for your Question

Most likely this is viral conjunctivitis. Viral Conjunctivitis is a self-limiting disease usually within a week and you just need eye drops to relieve symptoms of redness, itching, burning and foreign body sensation. Tobradex is fine just make sure to take it 5 times a day

Use also artificial tears to relieve burning and foreign body sensation. Try not to wear your contact lenses until you are cured.

In case you didnt feel any improvement, you should visit your eye doctor
