If your right eye offends you...
Up till now I have escaped the scourge of seasonal allergies. Every spring and summer of my life I have watched my afflicted loved ones grow wheezy, red, itchy, and drippy while I sailed merrily along, enjoying the sunshine and fresh air, all the while trying to seem as concerned and sympathetic as possible. Not so anymore. I have joined the club and upgraded my membership to the insanely itchy eye package. My right eye in particular. The form of treatment I have found to be most effective is to
rub it incessantly with my knuckle take Benadryl. I do not like taking Benadryl for the following reasons 1) I am nursing and I worry about medications affecting Ingrid 2) The side effects work even better than the relief and I don't need to be any more tired than I already am with a baby who thinks she needs a snack at least 3 times most nights and a husband who is recovering from abdominal surgery (that's right, no lifting).
I'm wondering if there are any eye drops that would help allergy itching at all. I used some Dry Eyes drops that didn't help at all. Anybody know? This is an unexpected side effect of moving to Florida.
