Unlikely: Allergies tend to cause itching and watering. Dry eyes and blepharitis often cause burning. Try some artificial tears and see if this brings relief. If it does, it's probably dry eyes.

Maybe. Itching?: You will blink your eyes if they itch from allergies but blinking can be a symptom of many other eye problems like an infection, a foreign body, or sensitivity to strong light. Blinking can also be an involuntary nervous habit called a "tic" the photo is of "cobblestoning" on the lower eyelid, commonly seen in allergic conjunctivitis.

Few tips: Wash your hands and face when you come in from outside. There are OTC or prescription antihistamine eye drops. Systemic antihistamines like zyrtec (cetirizine). If all that fails consider allergy shots. I would see an allergist to test for what you are allergic to and go from there.

cold compresses applied to the outside of your eyes can also help to relieve symptoms. And do not rub your eyes--it only makes things worse
