The most common cause for itching is allergy. The exact allergen might be difficult to determine and could be anything from dust, pollen.

Symptomatic treatment can be taken such as OTC Alaway or Zaditor eye drops, 1 drop twice a day for 1 to 2 weeks.

If itching persists then you would need stronger eye drops such as Olopatadine eye drops (prescription drops).

Hello Uwhubetiyi,

I just wanted to add a few points here.

The symptoms of watering from eyes with sand like sensation can often be seen with co-existing dry eyes. Lubricating eye drops such as Refresh tears eye drops, 1 drop 4 times a day for about a month would be very helpful ( available OTC).

Thank you for the positive rating and bonus. Hope you get relief soon.
