Your eye allergy symptoms are often caused by the inflammation and swelling in your nose! The nose and the eyes are connected by a tube called the naso-lacrimal duct (fun party fact). When your nose gets swollen, that tube also swells. This can lead to eye irritation and swelling. Eye drops will make you feel better, but usually won’t prevent or solve the problem. The best medicine will always be a nasal spray that reduces swelling that leads to those pesky eye symptoms in the first place.
When the eyes get itchy and irritated, you rub around them. This can lead to eczema and rashes on the eyelid and around the eyes. A medicated nasal spray will decrease the rashes and eczema around your eyes and prevent them from coming back!
