In brief: Allergies

This time of year, we often see people with itchy, watery eyes due to allergies.
Sometimes they are puffy in the mornings, but there shouldn't be crusty discharge. Antihistamines by mouth may help, but you may also need prescription eye drops. If there is puffiness anywhere else on the body, there could be a kidney problem.
