: I have constant itchy nose, am photosensitive, chronic sinutitis and aggrivated nasal lining, doctors have constantly asked me if I sniff cocaine, or paint, or glue! I cannot tell you how EMBARRASSING & AGGRAVATING that question is!! I don't know what I am allergic to. My brother has the same, but worse, swollen, red, itchy eyes, that crust over at night. It does not seem to ever go away. Does anyone else have these symptoms?
You sound like you have classic allergy symptoms. Why not go in and be tested and get medication to help things out? As for your brother .....he sounds like he could have an eye problem that should be looked at by an opthamologist. I had similar problems 2 summers ago and have what is called blepharitis but required antibiotics for it. I also have roseaca and the eye specialist says my eye condition is a part of all of this. In the mean time have your brother scub his eye lids well with a clean washcloth that has diluted baby shampoo on it twice a day to see if this helps some then tell him he needs to get this taken care of by a doctor. Why suffer when help is just a doctor visit away??
