In brief: Get second opinion

Allergies cause itching ; tearing.
Over-the-counter allergy medicine ; eyedrops help relieve it. Zaditor (ketotifen) is a good eyedrop. Blepharitis also causes itching ; this can occur with allergies. It's a minor infection of the eyelids. Crusting ; tearing is common. Warm compress with daily baby shampoo washing of the eyelids helps relieve this. Severe cases are placed on antibiotics by your doctor.
