Dr. Varshney,
I did some gardening Sunday and I believe one of the plants I trimmed, had some
white (like milk) i got on my hands, but due to my getting sweaty, i might have wiped my face, even though I washed my hands immediately.
It started last night, no sneezing, no pain, no headache and no fever just very sore runny eyes and nose.

Brief Answer:
Detail Follows.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX
This seems to be Allergic response to some plant.
I would suggest you to take Tab Allegra (Fexofenadine) 120 mg twice a day for three days.
This would give you immense relief. In case you also have itching over your body that might also be due to allergy, it would also get relived.
If you have any further query, feel free to ask me.
Stay Healthy
