Help!! - Eye itchiness & redness

Hello- I have never had allergies in my life until recently. Starting about a year ago, I get red, extremely itchy eyes on and off. I’ve been to the allergist who claims I am not allergic to anything and the eye doctor who claims it is most certainly an allergy. I have been on steroid and anti histimine eye drops and both help for a day or so but then im right back where I was. I’m absolutely desperate as it is really messing with my daily life. I will get itchiness, puffiness and redness in the middle of work and have to step outside for a few moments. Whatever it is, I believe it is an indoor allergen, as being outside makes it better. What could this be??

Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i think it is allergy and you need to consult an allergist and immunologist to find out the possible allergen for your cause and treat that accordingly.

Take care
