| | 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.
