Irritation in right eye, excessive watering, blocked left nostril, sneezing. Suggestions?

Hi my right eye is irritated (has been very red for about 5 hours) and is watering a lot especially when looking at things that are bright/white (my vision isn t affected apart from when i am blinking to clear my eye of excess water). My left nostril is also blocked now and I seem to be developing symptons such as sneezing . It only occured about 5 hours ago but I seem to be getting worse quickly. I plan to sleep now and see if it goes away. What would you recommend?

Hello and welcome to HCM.

Thank you for your query.

Although a sudden onset does indicate a hypersensitivity reaction, we will have to rule out an infection as well. A hypersensitivity reaction can be treated with anti-histamine medications, and will give you rapid relief.

I understand your symptoms are limiting and exhaustive, thus I recommend you visit a doctor to get yourself examined and rule out/diagnose an infection. Treatment for both conditions is easy and provides quick relief.

I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications. I would gladly help you.

Best wishes.
