Default Every year around summer my eye grows uncontrolably ichy, possible allergy?

4 years in a row now that my eyes goes very ichy during the summer. It is horribly ichy for a while, like couple of weeks and then it goes away. Could it be that i'm allergic to something, if so, should i take like clariton or something?

Keep your fingers out of your eyes.

When it happens wash your hands thoroughly and then wash your eyes out even more thoroughly. Then don't anything higher than your mouth. Not even to dry your face. Let it air dry.

Sounds like you're getting some sort of allergen in your eye.

Try poking out your eyes... Works for me... I've got a gal typing this out for me and I've never felt better...

Was happening to me too until I stopped putting cayan pepper in my eyes and started taking an allergy pill. Modern medicine can cure anything.

You probably have allergies. Go to the doctor, get an allergy test.

Welcome to my hell.

The kid from Jeepers Creepers lost his eyes. Ouch. Last scream of his life while the Jeepers Creepers song was playing.

Its called hayfever, when the pollen levels get high.

I didn't have a problem with it until I was a jr in high school. It was strong for about 4-6 weeks, but many years later () I only feel it for about a week, and I only get a little itchy and sneezy. Claritin might be overkill for you tho.

It sucks, your eyes feel raw and itchy.

There's some allergy eyedrops you can buy such as these. I bought a bottle of Visine redness/allergy from my local grocery store for $2.99 it's worked great so far.

Same problem here and I agree with Rossman. I live on Antihistimen (sp) eye drops. Bausch & Lomb and Visine make them and they are the only things that get rid of the itch.
