Sneezing, itchy eyes. I wake up with a sore throat, I have swollen lymph nodes in neck for awhile. What could be the cause? Allergies

Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well. ...Read more

One of my eyes has discharged to redness or itchy. Is this allergies? I have sore throat and congested.

Possibly: Allergic conjunctivitis causes redness, watering and itching. The conjunctiva (inside of your eyelid) can have a cobblestone appearance. Sinus congestion is also common.

Viral URI causes sore throat, congestion, conjunctivitis ...Read more

a combination of itchy nose, swollen eye lids, and sore throat suggests an allergic reaction to inhalant allergens.

I've been sneezing up a storm lately, but no itchy eyes, hoarse throat etc. That'd suggest it's allergies.

I've been sneezing up a storm lately, but no itchy eyes, hoarse throat etc. That'd suggest it's allergies.

Still likely: Allergies don't have to affect anything other than your nose, so it still could be allergies. Anything that irritates the lining of your nose, like pollen, pepper or even some new lipstick or makeup that you put on your upper lip could be doing this. I'm sure it's a nuisance but it's not dangerous. Noses like to clear themselves out especially if irritated, and that's often a good thing! ...Read more

Can treat with daily nasal steroid sprays like fluticasone or nasacort (triamcinolone). ...Read more

Allergy?: A cold is not associated with itchy eyes and thus your symptoms are more likely from allergy. If your urine output is small, the frequency urination may just be from being kept up by your nasal symptoms. Try a steroid nasal spray. If the frequency of urinary persists even after your nasal and eye symptoms have improved, see your doctor. ...Read more
