Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
It itches primarily in the corner. only in the right eye. sometimes the itching is pretty bad. i had recurring reddness in the right eye a few years back and finally i diagnosed it myself as scleritis. after that i visited an opthalmologist and he agreed and then prescribed Efemoline. after using this, the reddness was gone after a day or two. this then reoccurred about 3 times with 2 to 3 months interval but it seems the broblem is gone now. I do suffer from IBS which is an outoimmune type of problem. I do not know if all of this is related.
Have you tried any oral antihistamines for this?
I'm sorry we seemed to have had some issues with the chat session.
This does sound consistent with allergic conjunctivitis. First of all, it is important to control the eye's response to allergens and this would include taking an antihistamine drop; an OTC drop to use that works fairly well is called Ketotifen. If you try this and it helps but is not quite enough, or if you would rather start out with the most effective, comfortable drop, then you may do better with a prescription allergy drop called Pataday (olopatadine) which works very well. If this still isn't enough then it may be necessary to start an oral antihistamine such as Claritin (loratidine) or Zyrtec (cetirizine) (in addition to the drops) which you can buy over-the-counter. Lastly, cold compresses done several times/day can and will help the itching sensation and suppress the inflammation.
