Allergic responses: The range of allergic responses include eyelid redness, itching scaling and increased, rather than decreased, redness of your eyes. This allergic response requires you to try a different medication for irritation of your eyes and you may try cool compresses, and if needed, oral antihistamines such as loratidine. Remember,while topical allergic responses are irritating they are seldom serious.
