In brief: Itchy

If from dry eyes you need to increase lubrication and decrease evaporation.
If allergic try to remove possible allergens. Air filters, remove animals, change soaps, detergents, bedding in a step wise manner.

In brief: Yes

Yes, try zaditor (ketotifen) or patanol, which can be found over the counter. Also cold compresses.

In brief: That's a start

There are over-the-counter eye drops for allergies; some work better than others.
As well, artificial tears can help. If the itching persists after a few days, you should see an eye doctor for an evaluation and to better help relieve your discomfort.
