Brief Answer:
Possible Allergic blepharitis

Detailed Answer:
Hello Mam

I can certainly understand your concern.

As per your symptoms, you possibly seem to have Allergic blepharitis and conjunctivitis.

This requires careful institution of antiallergic eardrops.

I generally prescribe Eye drops Olapatadine 2 drops in each eye 4 times a day for 1 week.

This will effective reduce all the symptoms.

Please check with your physician if he shares my view and if can prescribe these pills to you.

Post your further queries if any.

Thank you.
