This is Dr. David

it sounds like you were rubbing your eyes pretty hard.

spring time now is bad allergy season

you need to go on daily oral allergy pills like allegra or claritin or zyrtec

and also use steroid nasal sprays if you have runny nose

and allergy eye drops daily to prevent your eyes from being so itchy.

you need to see a doctor about this redness of your eyes and skin coming off of your eyelid.

your doctor can also give you steroid and antibiotic eye drops which can help your itchiness as well

let me know if you have other questions.

if done for now, please leave positive rating of 3-5 stars so I can get credit for helping you today
