Question: My right eye picture attached has been itching for the past three days. the itchy feeling is the worst in the morning. the picture attached is how it looks when I first wake up, eye not crusted over. I have been using equate allergy eye drops in the eye and it really soothes the itchiness of the eye. Do I need to go to my physician now or should I wait a little longer?

Brief Answer:
Allergy

Detailed Answer:
My dear
Thanks for sending your query to us.
This is allergy.What you can add is a oral antiallergy tablet once a day in the evening,this will take care of morning irritation and control allergy faster.If it doesn't resolve in 2days time then we should have you examined.
Do get back to me in case of any further query in this regard.
