Pink eye and chemosis

My eyes look terribly red, swealling and when i look in the mirror i notice there is a watery shadow over the vessels in the conjunctiva, which my best hint would be chemosis, whatever it is the case, its been a week and things arent getting any better, since the pain isn't going away, what would be the best i can do?.
Would Maxidex eye drops work for me?. A friend of mine suggested to take them if i feel so much pain, but i dont know if this will relief the pink eye.

You should see an ophthalmologist to determine the cause of the chemosis and redness.  There are many causes from infection, inflammation, and systemic diseases.

Thank you. But unfortunately i cant find a doctor so easily where i live. I managed to set up an appointment to see one the next week.

However is there anything i can do on the meantime?.
Should i take any medication?
