Re: around my eyes are itchy

I know my eyes become very red, itchy and swollen after I've been around dogs or cats.
I would recommend eyedrops to aleviate the itching, cool compresses and avoiding touching your eyes with your hands/fingers.
You could be coming in contact with something you are unaware of that is causing your eyes to itch.
If it continues you may want to see a doctor as to why this is happening. It may be possible you have an infection in your eyes causing this.
Don't mess around with your sight and good luck.

Have you tried cortisone cream? I had a problem with contact dermatitis around my eyes (eye lids, under eyes, corner of eyes) that caused dry, red, itchy, flaky skin for many weeks. I tried regular facial lotion to no avail. Only after trying cortisone (1%) cream, available OTC, did my problem go away. It only took 2-3 days and my [pretty] severe skin problem was completely gone.

You may have rubbed you eyes after touching something that your skin was allergic to, which I think is what happened with me. I rub my eyes a lot. I think when I was using WhiteStrips on my teeth I touched the strips with my fingertips and got hydrogen peroxide on them, and rubbed my eyes. That's all I can think of that caused my problem. Anyway, the cortisone cream did the trick for me...I just wish I had tried it earlier instead of suffering for a month.
