Allergies can make life miserable. While there are many symptoms of allergies, often 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.
After you have identified that you suffer from allergies, make an attempt to pinpoint what triggers your allergic reactions. Sometimes you can learn what you need to do simply by paying attention or you may also visit a doctor for an allergy test that will identify your sensitivities. Ideally you would just be able to stay away from the problem and no longer be forced to endure the symptoms. Unfortunately this is not always possible, either because you can't isolate the problem or it is impossible for you to stay away from the allergens that most affect you.
