Doctor DanB :

Hello and thanks for your question. If you're using Patanol and it still is itching, then I would advise continuing to use the Patanol, but to augment with other treatment options. These include...

Doctor DanB :

Artificial tears 3-4x/day and cool compresses (an ice pack or cool, wet washcloth) as much as you want--they will help cool the inflammation down--will help the eye feel better immediately. But your allergies may be significant enough that you need more than just the Patanol. I would recommend also taking an over-the-counter antihistamine such as Claritin, Zyrtec, or Allegra in addition to the Patanol. Does all this make sense?

Doctor DanB :
