My eyes are soooo itchy from hayfever..
« on: 06/06/2007 20:31:34 »
Why are my eyes so itchy from hayfever??

I think it's because when the pollen/grass stuff goes into my eye, my body thinks that it is harmful for my body, and makes it cry and itchy, so that my hands will get rid of them that is on my eye. Or near it.

Is this right? And what can I do to prevent this itching and pain after itching them..?

I just take tablets..

Used to take eyedrops, but I hate them.

What is an antihistemine?

It's probably the kind of active ingredient in the tablets you are taking:

It helps dry up excess secretions and make you less itchy!
