    Yes, it is possible to get bloodshot eyes because of medical conditions. Some people may be allergic to some drugs such as penicillin or codeine. Are you taking some medicine in these time, if so, you shall consult an eye doctor if it the medicine you take cause the bloodshot eyes to you. If not, you shall consider other causes of bloodshot eyes such as eye infection or pink eyes. If so, you can use some antibiotic eye drops.
