Allergies: There are many causes of itching, as well as symptoms of dryness. It's important to have a thorough evaluation by your eye doctor to determine the cause (i.e., blepharitis, dry eyes, or allergies) to see what is causing your symptoms. This will determine the proper treatment. Some chronic severe symptoms may require treatment with prescription medicines.
