Hell Renee,

Eye itching is a sign of ocular allergies. In addition to the allergy pills, you may benefit from an antihistamine eye drop or steroid eye drops. You likely have blepharitis as well or inflammation of the eyelid margin. Lid scrubs with dilute baby shampoo will help clear the debris from the bases of the eyelashes.
