Red eyes

Both eyes have been red for approximately 2 1/2 months. I have been to a medical doctor who treated me for conjunctivitis even though I only had the red eyes and not the “crusting.” After 10 days with no change, the medical doctor referred me to an eye doctor. The eye doctor checked my eye pressure and swabbed the eye. His course of treatment was a regimen of antibioticics for the eye. When that did not work after 10 days he tried Steroids. It made the redness disappear, but you can only use steroids for a couple of days. When I stop using the steroids, the redness returns. I’ve had allergies all my life and it has never caused red eyes before. Can anyone suggest a course of action?
