In brief: No

Could have allergies, blepharitis, dry eye, foreign body, infection, lid malposition, eyelash misdirection, environment irritants, etc.

In brief: NO

Eye scratchiness and itching upon awakening is often due to dry eye rather than allergy.
Try putting in some artificial tears and see if that helps. See your ophthalmologist when you are able since it may also be related to eyelids that do not completely close when sleeping.
