Specializes in Pediatrics

Allergies?: What you describe sounds like his nose and eyes itch, and rubs his nose and eyes, and squints to try and relieve the itch. If there is a family history of allergies, such as hay fever, asthma or eczema, then it is more likely to be that. A visit to his pediatrician will help sort things out for you.

Possible allergies: Eye and nose itching can trigger rubbing and increased blinking. Keep a diary of the symptoms and discuss with your child's doctor.
