Discuss with doctor: No one medication is best- depends on other medical conditions as well. Try zyrtec (cetrizine) 10 mg or Claritin (loratidine) 10mg.. Add decongestant as well: sudafed 30-60mg. Avoid Benadryl (diphenhydramine) as it causes sleepiness zaditor is a good otc eye drop for the eye itching.
