What could be causing itchiness near the tear duct of my left eye?

In brief: Allergen

Tears drain anything in the eye through a drain near the inside corner. Irritating substances can be concentrated in this area.
If the vision is not disturbed and there is no pus or pain, you can try over the counter anti-allergic eyedrops to improve this along with eye cleaning. If persistent, see your ophthalmologist.
