Allergies can make life miserable. While there are many symptoms of allergies, coming into contact with allergens can immediately and severely affect your eyes. In addition to the sneezing, coughing, itching, and sinus problems that allergies can cause, you may also find your eyes affected.
Signs of allergies in the eyes are tearing, itching and swelling, often accompanied by red around and in the eyes. If this sounds like you when you are in contact with pollen, pet dander, mold or dust, chances are you are wondering what you can do to alleviate your symptoms.
If you know you suffer from allergies, make an attempt to pinpoint what triggers your allergic reactions. Sometimes you can learn what you need by paying attention or visiting a doctor for an allergy test to identify your sensitivities.
Ideally you would be able to stay away from the problem. Unfortunately, this is not always possible because you can’t isolate the problem or because it is impossible for you to stay away from the allergens that affect you. If you need assistance with allergic reactions, contact our office today.
