Itchy eyes

Hi, I have for the past few days started to get cold like symptons, started with a sore throat, then blocked ears and blocked nose and now my right eye look red and feels a bit itchy.

I have taken my contact len out in this eye and am wearing my glasses for a few days until my symptons clear.

Do you think this is just because I have a cold that my eyes are itchy and dry and a little tired? Does a cold affect your eyes?

I have also developed a very small lump like a small pimple on my right eye that is affected - it is a small clear like pimple on the lower inside eye lid?

Any advice would  be appreciated?

Thanks
Emma
