Itchy face can actually be a hay fever symptom. It happens to me.

The strongest allergy medication is benadryl, but it causes drowsiness.

Have you tried Claritin? (loratidine is the generic) It can take a couple weeks to start working if you are already having symptoms, but it might work well for you.
I do a combo of things. I agree Benadryl is one of the best. I also take allegra but I do believe that is a prescription. But taking both seems to help me keep things in control. Sorry you are feeling bad and I hope you can find something that works for you! Good luck!:)
