Allergies board

I'm in my early 20s, and have been experiencing seasonal allergies from when I was about 11 or so. Anyways, my biggest problem is that every morning I've been waking up with very puffy, tired eyes. Allergy medicine (Allegra, Reactine, etc) seem to do nothing for this. I checked the drugstore today and everything advertises to help with "dry, itchy, watering red eyes"... but not SWOLLEN! I'm at a loss for how to relieve this symptom. I can deal with my other allergy symptoms, but the swelling of my eyelids really makes it hard for me to stay awake during the day. I look and feel tired even when I get 10 hours of sleep!

Would using a gel eye-mask thingy help? Is there anything I can do...

Thanks in advance!
Puffy eyes are caused by sinus issues, I think. :-) Instead of looking for drops or something, try out some Sudafed if your congested, or some allegra or somethign to dry up your sinuses...or both. :-)
