Dr. A.S. Desai :

Hello, Welcome to Just Answer

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Looks like you are having a bout of viral nasopharyngitis ( common cold). It is common to have watering of eyes during this. You can take Syrup Benedryl, 1 tablespoon at bedtime, for 1 week. it helps in case of running nose and a tightness in the throat. It can cause drowsiness in some individuals hence one should be cautious while driving when taking this medicine.

Dr. A.S. Desai :

For the eyes you can start putting preservative free refresh tears eye drops, 1 drop 4 times a day.

JACUSTOMER-eqht6c5n- :

I wanted a homepathic remedy NOT a pharmaceutical remedy which costs less in my country than your answer and which I am trying to avoid using! I would appreciate your refunding my 55.00NZ as I feel it has been mis apporopriated - taken under false pretences

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Sorry but there was no mention about not wanting an allopathic treatment in the question at all. If you are not looking for this answer then please do NOT accept this answer so that you are not charged for this.

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Just exit this chat ( do NOT accept ) and contact the customer care for the needful.

Dr. A.S. Desai :
