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.

Allergies: Start with a mattress bag it contains any bed dust mites and you are lying on it several hours a day. Pillow bag as well
Consider otc antihistamine like Claritin (loratadine) give it a few days to work. Benedryl will help but you will be sleepy

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.

For almost 2weeks now I am having a runny nose and watery eyes what can I do?

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).

Possibly: These symptoms may be caused by allergies or also can be viral. If you have them frequently lasting longer than 2 weeks, most likely an allergy trigger. An allergist can help evaluate your symptoms and help treat it appropriately.

See an allergist: Your symptoms strongly suggest environmental allergy. Stay indoors as much as you can, drive with closed window and recirculate air, at home close windows. You can take otc anti-histamines, such as cetirizine, fexofenadine of loratadine; irrigate nose with saline, artifiical tears to eyes and drops such as ketotifen. If all these don't help, see an allergist.
