Why does only my right eye burn and water from allergies ?

May not be allergies: Conjunctivitis can cause similar symptoms and can be either viral or bacterial, in addition to allergic. I would make sure that this is not infectious first, before attributing it to allergies. Contact wearers need to be especially cautious since special bugs can cause infections in them. See your doctor first. ...Read more

My right eye keeps watering. I woke up with crust in my eye. I think it's allergy issue. What should I do to fix it?

Herpes eye infection: Unless you are allergic to your bedsheets, the cause of a unilateral crusty, watery eye with itching is more likely a bacterial superinfection. However, with the history of a cold sore (a herpes virus type i reactivation) you really should see an ophthalmologist urgently to rule out herpes keratitis. This might be serious. The diagnosis can be challenging, so the eye-md is your best choice. ...Read more

Right eye has been red for 2 days. No burning, itching, pain, goop or swelling. Eye has watered today. Started 10mg lexapro (escitalopram) week ago. Why is eye red?

Right eye has been red for 2 days. No burning, itching, pain, goop or swelling. Eye has watered today. Started 10mg lexapro (escitalopram) week ago.  Why is eye red?

Lexapro (escitalopram) not culprit: Hi AmandaL- In my experience, Lexapro (escitalopram) is unlikely to cause red eye in just one eye. If it was a drug reaction, it would be more likely to be in both eyes. It could be: allergies, eye contamination, eye trauma such as a scratch. Good luck. Hope you feel better. ...Read more

Different: Don't know what myokymia is but allergic eyes usually itch and dry eyes usually burn. Both may be associated with tearing and redness. For itchy eyes, some otc drop or oral antihistamine may help if the duration lasts no more than a week. For more severe cases, a prescription antihistamine eye drops should be tried.
