I've had REALLY bad allergies my whole life, but this
year my eye allergies are especially bad. I take allergy medicine and eye
drops, but my eyes this year are so sensitive and sore that it’s getting close
to breaking the skin around my eyes. I have a constant state of red eyes and
skin. Even creams and lotions sting when I apply them. What should I do?
I totally sympathize, babe, ‘cause I’m dealing with spring
allergies, too. Since you’ve been dealin’ with crazy symptoms for your entire
life, chances are you know all about avoiding allergens and taking your
antihistamines. It does sound like
they’re out of control this year, so to start finding a solution to your
symptoms, I suggest visiting your doc or an allergist ASAP. They might be able
to prescribe a special eye drop, skin creams or even change up your allergy
In the meantime, head to the drugstore and pick up a jar of
eye cream for sensitive skin. You want something that doesn’t have any
fragrance or sunscreen that could irritate your red skin. Look for all-natural
ingredients…and the shorter the list of chemicals, the better.
Good luck, sweetie!
