2 year old. Scratching right eye and nose constantly, touching forehead. Suggest?

Hi, my two year old has been scratching his right eye and his nose constantly for a couple of months now. His eye is not red at all and he has not had a cold for a long time. In the last two days he is also touching his forehead above his right eye and pausing for a while as if there is something sore or irritating him. He doesn t cry but I m just a bit concerned. We have no pets at home, he doesn t go to nursery and we don t smoke so I ve ruled out all the possibilities that I have read on this website. Any ideas? Thanks

Pediatrician 's  Response
Such kind of behaviour looks very atypical.If he has no fever and appetite good ,then quite likely he has picked up a habbit of attracting your attention.Though i guess it would be better to get his pediatrician checked him thoroughly to rule out any hidden infection.
Take Care.
