Allergy eye drops: Although you can achieve some relief of allergy eye symptoms with oral antihistamines, allergy eye drops are far more effective. Medications such as zaditor, patanol, pataday, Bepreve (bepotastine besilate) and Optivar can be very effective at relieving allergy eye symptoms.

Depends: First, you need to make sure the watery eyes are indeed caused by an allergy. Dry eye syndrome can cause that as well, and treatment would be different. For watery eyes due to allergies you can use an antihistamine eye drop, like pataday, and/or an oral antihistamine like zyrtec (cetirizine). Please check with your doctor first, to establish the cause.

Eye allergies: Allergic conjunctivitis can be very uncomfortable and at times difficult to treat. Many allergy eye drops are non-steroid and can be helpful. If these are not helpful, it is useful to seek advice from an ophthalmologist (eye specialist) for a closer look to make sure there is not something more than allergies triggering symptoms. If not they have stronger eye drops available.

Flushing with water: Washing the eyelids with lots of water or using a contact lens solution to rinse the eyes can be very helpful when your eyes are really itching and watering. Cool, wet towels on the eyes can also relieve some of the itching. These may not give complete relief though, and that's the time when you need medicine.

Antihistamine: For allergic eyes first remove allergens if possible. Cool compresses help and anti-allergye eye drops. Several otc eye drops (over the counter - in pharmacies without a prescription) are available containing ketotifen including zatidor and zyrtec (cetirizine) eye drops. Prescription eye drops may help if the above are not effective - talk to your doctor or see an allergist.

Antihistamine: While lubricating drops help some, antihistamines drops do the most for eye allergy symptoms, including itching & watering. There are many over-the-counter antihistamine products to choose from. Older products may be combined with decongestants which decrease redness; however, overuse of these products may cause increased rebound redness. Plain antihistamine drops are your best bet for itching.

I think I may have a food allergy (eyes and face swollen, nose and eyes runny) - I drink 3 - 4 Allergex a day but minor relief. What could this be? Food allergy?

I think I may have a food allergy (eyes and face swollen, nose and eyes runny) - I drink 3 - 4 Allergex a day but minor relief. What could this be? Food allergy?

Possibly correct: The symptoms could definitely fit with an allergy. Inhalant allergens or food allergens could be behind your condition. High doses of antihistamines could be harmful in the absence of a clear diagnosis. I would suggest you consult your doctor for a clinical evaluation and possible allergy test.

Dietary will help: Making sure to hydrate well and cutting out sugars, dairy, sodas, processed foods, desserts will reduce phlegm production. Cut out tobacco, as that can be contributory too. There are eye drops that help reduce allergies but you must see your eye doctor first. Cool compresses are also useful over eyes.

Unusual: Your history is interesting in that the symptoms don't appear until a day after the exposure when most food allergy symptoms occur within 2 hours after the exposure. Regardless of the mechanism, if you have problem from eating certain foods, avoidance is the best solution.
