Dear Yogesh,there could be either dryness of your eyes,or some allergic reaction.there could be some common reason like,excessive dryness of eyes due to using computer,some hair oil you are using,some local cream or shampoo you may using.If your are working on computer many hours in a day ,please take a break of couple of minutes every hour and close your eyes.Wash your eyes with water 3-4 times in a day.Also look for dandruff in your hair.Please do not put any eye drops without consulting your doctor.take care.
