Welcome to healthcare magic.You can start with oloblue(Olopatadine) eyedrops 0.1% one drop twice daily for a wk when you have these symptoms.It should respond if its just due to allergy.Recurrent episodes and not responding to the above medication requires visit to the doctor.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic

With the history you have furnished , i see that you suffer from an allergic condition called as spring catarh , which is common in summer and humid conditions , its a type of allergic condition and causes itching , watering of eyes , and irritation due to dust particles , i advice you to use a handkerchief to wipe the tears and never rub your eyes , you may have to visit an eye doctor and may need a course of steroid drops . It will solve your problem

Wish you good health
