Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi, I'll try to help you tonight.
Do you typically have allergies this time of the year??
my only diagnosed allergy is a nut allergy. I have no experiance with hayfevour
sorry if any of responses are delayed I'm typing from a smartphone
Have you tried lotions or vaseline applied to the skin around your eyes??
I have tried applying regular facial
does it help at all??
I have tried applying regular facial moisturiser and vitamin E oil but it's a very short term relife
It lasts maybe an afternoon at best
I would recommend that you take a non-sedating antihistamine such as Cyterizine or Fexofenidine (Zyrtec or Allegra) once daily and that you apply 1% hydrocoritisone cream to the skin around your eyes
It sounds like you have Periorbital Dermatitis
This is usually due to allergies.
There are also some allergy eye drops that you can use, but they need to be prescribed by a physician.
So like a allergy to pollon? And would that treatment be purchasable in any pharmacy?
Yes, allergy to the season (mainly pollen)
Yes, Allegra and Zyrtec are available in the States over the counter without the need for a prescription. Hydrocortisone is also sold in a pharmacy without a prescription.
I'm seeing someone on Monday who can prescribe me what I need. Is there anything you can suggest to help
Patanol or Besivance
thank you very much for your help.
You're very welcome. Good luck
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX a good day :)
