Identify exposure: Itching is frequently a sign of a sensitivity to an exposure. It can be caused by histamine. If your symptoms occur every 20-25 days, then it is not likely to be dry eye. If there is no discharge, it is not likely to be an infection. I would suggest looking closely at your exposures the next time the symptoms arise, such as cosmetics, corrective lenses, environmental allergens, and medications. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The inside corners of my eyes itch/burn but are not red. Itching them only makes it worse and more persistent. Eye drops do not help.
Examination time: Mixed itching & burning symptoms are a broad symptom complex. It's best to have examination. If it's the eyeball's inner corner, antihistamine or mild steroid eye drop would likely help. If it's the inner eyelid skin, then it may require an ophthalmic steroid ointment. Warm compresses & eyelid cleansing may help as well. An examination will help to elucidate the cause & best approach to treatment. ...Read more

Benedryl...: Sudafed (pseudoephedrine) will dry your eyes more and may not have an effect on itching. Try benedryl by mouth and use refrigerator-chilled artificial tears to soothe your eyes. If the condition does not improve, see a general ophthalmologist. Many topical anti-allergy drops are available over-the-counter and with a prescription. ...Read more
Can i use "Pred Forte" eye drops and "Maxidex" ointment for my red eyes and also having itching in my eyes.
Have you used: these drops before? One needs to use steroids in the eye carefully and under supervision of an eye care provider. Red eyes can come from a number of causes such as allergy, dry eye, inflammation, or infection. I would start with artificial tears or anti-allergy drops first and if they don't help seek eye care for further diagnosis and treatment. Good luck! ...Read more

No pain, no itching, just red eyes. Condition i've had throughout my life. Tried many eye drops, mostly artificial tears. Ways to prevent redness?
Many possibilities: It can be way too many things to list, such as chronic allergies, pterygium, chronic dry eyes, large blood vessels, etc. An ophthalmologist would be able to tell. The one thing you don't want to start doing is self treating with very dangerous eye drops, such as visine and clear eyes, which will certainly make it worse. Start with an ophthalmology exam and go from there. Feel better. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
