Not recommended: Tobramycin drops are for eye infections. They can be irritating to the eyes themselves and may make allergy worse. Best to use an antihistamine drops - many out there on the market and if things don't clear up, see an ophthalmologist.

No: It doesn't treat itching, and tobramycin is irritating to the ocular surface.
