Red itchy skin around the eyes is , most often, due to allergies. If there is no itching within the eyes, there seems to be no need to start any topical medication
in the form of eye drops to be used internally. More often than not an oral antihistamine like 5 mg Cetrizine
tablets relieve the symptoms. However, sometimes patients tend to feel sleepy with this and hence an alternative is Levocetrizine tablets taken 2 times a day for a few days. The red, itchy skin around your eyes may be treated locally with an eye ointment that has an antibiotic and steroid
combinaiton like ciprofloxacin
2 times a day again for a few days to be continued till your doctor's appointment.
