Welcome to Just Answer:

It is likely that you are experiencing ocular allergic blepharoconjunctivitis. Another possible cause include blepharochalasis. To resolve any of these conditions, I suggest that you apply warm/hot compresses to affected eyelid twice daily for 2 weeks. In addition, use over the counter Zaditor eye drop 4 times daily for 1 week, then twice daily for 1 week. You should also consider using over the counter Zyretc 1 pill daily for 2 weeks. If this fails to resolve 1 week, I suggest that you follow-up with your eye doctor for closer evaluation, and possible prescription for doxycycline 100 mg twice daily for 10 to 14 days and/or Zylet eye drop 4 times for 7- 10 days.
