Enviroment Allergies: 'tis the season with everything bloming to have 'environmental allergy symptoms' of watery eyes, runny nose. Daily anti-histamines are available otc (zyrtec, claritin, allegra) and may help with symtoms. You may want to get seen if not improving. A prescription of Flonase nasal spray (fluticazone generic) may help or a trial of singulair (montelukast). An allergist can be a great resource.

Almost anything: Triggers can basically be divided into allergens and irritants. Allergens will include pollen from trees, weeds, and grasses. Also mold, dust mites and pets. Irritants include dust, smoke, cleaning products, changes in weather, etc. The are other rare causes of these like migraines.

Sounds like an allergy to all the beautiful flowers in Trinidad - too bad. Other possibility is a viral infection (yes, including coronavirus). See a doctor or a clinic to get some meds to relieve the symptoms (virus or allergy, symptoms and meds are very similar).

Allergies?: Have you been checked for allergies? I would try 2 weeks of claritin (loratadine) (loratidine) or allegra (fexofenadine) OTC to see if that helps. If it does help then it is likely you have allergies. If it makes no difference at all then I would see your doctor for further evaluation.
