Angry Itchy Eyes, Lips, Sneezing, Nasal Drip. . . Allergy?

My whole life I have never been an "allergy person". I am 44. The past year, consistently, I have had itchy eyes & lips, also but not as bad the sneezing & nasal drip. I will have a skin or patch test (which one is best?) at the dermatologist next month, but how helpful is this test? Will it tell me if I am allergic to dust? or pollen?

This morning, like every morning, my eyes feel ok when I awake, but after I get moving around a little and touch my eye area for any reason, the itchiness starts in like a bad dream. Claritin no longer seems to work for me. Should I be using Claritin-D or just regular Claritin?

I hate this allergy & wish it would go away. Could it be something else beside allergy? It is just weird that it started up later in life, and I've never had allergy issues before.

Problem solved - I was alleric to the body wash soap which I have been using for years. I threw that out quick.
