Brief Answer:
Probably cedar mountain allergy, follow the advice below.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Yes, your symptoms seem to be related to mountain cedar allergy.

The most important thing is to avoid contact with cedar trees.

I would recommend using daily antihistamines such as Benadryl.

I also recommend using steroid nasal sprays such as Flonase which is an over the counter medication.

I suggest using steroid eye drops to relieve the eye itching.

I suggest you to drink liquids and rest.

The symptoms will relieve in a few days.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
