Itchy eyes: You may have an allergic response to the alcohol or a preservative in the alcohol. As long as you have no shortness of breath, it is ok to try some artificial tears, or an allergy drop such as zaditor (ketotifen) (over the counter). If symptoms persist, call your local ophthalmologist.See 1 more doctor answer

I have an itchy nose when I go to bed (only when I'm in bed). I start sniffling and I have to get up to blow my nose. How do I stop this?
Allergy?: While taking an antihistamine or using a nasal steroid spray daily may help your symptoms, finding the source of your apparent allergic reaction would be best. Dust or dust mites are the most likely Try replacing your pillow with a non-allergic one. Try vacuuming under your bed and mattress itself. Then cover the mattress with a zippered impermeable cover that is made for people with allergies.
Histaminic reaction?: Doubt food allergy. Milk, eggs, wheat, soybeans, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts ; peanuts cause 90 % of food allergic reactions. Up to 15 million americans suffer from food allergies ; need to avoid not only certain foods but any ingredient that contains proteins derived from them. In some cases, anaphylaxis can result.

Allergy sx relief: Oral antihistamines like Claritin or zyrtec or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) (latter 2 may cause drowsiness; so caution with driving) will calm down the itching sensation. If more is needed, see doc for prescription steroid nasal spray, which works differently from the antihistamines & will provide added relief. If allergies severe, see allergist for desensitization therapy.

What could be reason that I sneeze when I eat sugary foods and have an itchy nose when eating hot food?
??: Hot foods easily expalined. Vapors of hot food are going into your sinsuses and nasal passages. This can cause itching. Why you sneeze with sugary foods is a mystery.
Multi-prong approach: The treatment approach for allergies is avoidance of the triggering allergy, medications and allergy injections if necessary. Nasal steroid sprays are the most effective treatment. Singulair (montelukast) has about the same effectiveness as antihistamines. A board certified allergist is a great resource to provide an individualized treatment plan just for you.See 1 more doctor answer
