More than likely related to the virus from which you are unfortunately suffering. The most common virus is one of the many strains of adenovirus which can cause pharyngoconjunctival fever: fever, malaise, soar throat and conjunctivitis (white pus with possibly some eye redness, puffiness and discomfort). It typically takes several days to recover and you definitely want to keep your hands clean so that you don't spread your communicable disease.
Best wishes,
