    There may be two reasons: First, the water temperature is higher than the temperature of your skin when you have a shower, it can increase the blood which is allocated to the surface of the skin. It can not only make you get bloodshot eyes, but also make your skin bloodshot. Second, all kinds of shampoo, cleansing products can give a physical stimulation to your eyes, which can cause inflammatory reactions. You can use some topical antibiotic eye drops or ointment according to the severity of the symptoms. But hypertension, cerebral thrombosis can also make you have bloodshot eyes, so for safety's sake, you can go to the hospital to have a careful examination. Hope these suggestions can help you.

    This is probably because you take a shower when the water is lukewarm or overheating. Because they all may lead to your eyes' capillaries expansion congestion, that is to say, they can make whites part of the eyes bloodshot look red. Still there may be another kind of situation that you are suffering from excessive internal heat which will cause eyes red and swollen.

    It is normal. I also have such experience. As we know, we usually use warm water when takiing shower, which make the bathroom higher temperature than other rooms. And the blood vessels in your eyes dilate from the heat. So, you can see blood shot eyes. Don't worry, it will get recovery after a while and you can also put on cold compresses.

    The blood vessels in your eyes dilate from the heat. You can put on cold compresses. Or your eyes was irritated by the shampoo you used to shower. In this way, you need to use the tap water to rinse your eyes several times until you feel better.
