What is a natural remedy for an itchy eye allergy in a 7 year old girl?

How natural?: Artificial tears made of salt water & Cellulose will soothe the symptoms of eye allergy. Cromolyn eye drops (crolom) is an herbal medication derived from the khella plant (ammi visnaga) that grows in egypt. It is purified but not altered. This remedy was used by the ancient eqyptians. Its very effective for allergic eyes. By my reckoning its as close as you're going to get to a natural remedy. ...Read more

What is the best treatment for Spring allergies with runny nose, sneezing, itchy face, and itching, red, burning eyes?

Allergies: The best treatment is: get an allergy skin test before starting treatment to see what you are allergic to. Depending on results we see if OTC Claritin (loratadine) or other anti allergy meds will work for body & if a mast cell stabilizer or antihistamine or steroid drop is needed for the eyes.

My 2 year old eyes are red,I don't think it's a pink eye because it doesn't have crust on it just red and itchy...she has allergies?

Itchy Allergic: The itchiness you describe and bilateral ( two sided) nature, as well as the time of year certainly would be associated with allergic cause. She is old enough for claritin (loratadine) 5 mg reditab as a trial medicine. If she's not better within the week, I'd have her looked at by her pediatrician or we are happy to consult here on prime! ...Read more

Allergy itch: You did right to give him an antihistamine. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) should work well for the type of itching he has. Itchy eyes suggest an allergy to something in the air, but occasionally other causes may trigger eye itching as well. If he played outdoors today, there was probably a lot of pollen around. He's about the age that kids start having seasonal allergies; it takes a few years to get going on those. ...Read more

My son has seasonal allergy started this year. He has sneezing, itchy and watery eyes. I tried zyretec and zadiator but nothing helping for watery eye?

See allergist, eyemd: Your son will need an evaluation by an eye doctor as well as possibly an allergist. The eye exam will confirm the severity and nature of the allergy, look for other factors that may be worsening the condition for the eyes, and to rule out problems that simulate allergy. Zaditor (ketotifen) and zyrtec are two of the best otc meds for allergy. Once allergy is confirmed, the allergist can do further testing. ...Read more

I get a bubble on my eyeball after a sever allergy attack. Is this a normal reaction? I'm allergic to cat dander and when i'm exposed to them my eyes get itchy and watery. However over the past year i've noticed a bubble of fluid on my left eyeball while

This : This type of swelling occurs in the clear covering over the white part of the eye. This clear layer is called the conjunctiva, and it has cells that produce tears, mucous and oils to keep the surface of the eye moist when these cells get over-stimulated, they can over-produce fluids, and this fluid can get trapped between the conjunctiva and the sclera (the white layer), so a bubble forms. Usually, this bubble will go away as you get better, but if it is irritating, or if it lasts longer, you should see an ophthalmologist (optometrists are not medical doctors, and most cannot prescribe medications) who can prescribe an anti-allergy drop such as patanol, Pataday or bepreve (bepotastine besilate). I often find that this is not sufficient, and a short course of steroid eye drops works better. These must be used with care, under the guidance of your doctor. One last note, please don't press on that bubble, or put anything else in your eye! this can make it more irritated, or cause other problems. ...Read more
