swollen, itchy irritated eyes would anti-histamines work (look like been punched!)?

That happens to me after I've peeled vegetables, carrots in particular but sometimes potatoes.

I have to make sure I wash my hands thoroughly with soap straight away to stop it happening!!

Anti-histamines should work.

Lindy L
yes they would work fine,
but go to your pharmacy or doctor if they dont work as it may be conjunctitus or a serious reaction.
if the anti histamines dont work, for the time being, use boiled water (not straight from a tap as it will still have bacteria in it) to just wash around the eye, this should help if there is any infection at all and will just help to keep it clean.
if its very sore, just use a cold flannel over them to help soothe them

I really sympathise with you as every day I look like I've been punched in my right eye.I had a stye on it a couple of months ago and was given antibiotics and eye cream and drops! The stye burst [urggh] but I still have a' punched in the eye' look and they itch and water every day. I've been back to the docs.,had more eye ointment.more eye drops and now a suggestion to go to the opticians. I have been put on Loretidine which is an anti-histamine but I gave up as that didn't seem to work either!
Sounds like you need a Holiday and to give your eyes a rest! I'd send you a presription for one if they were on the NHS.!

Chloramphenicol drops from the Pharmacy will help if the eyes are infected. Antihistamine will help if it is an allergy. Use cool boiled water with salt in it. Ratio 1 pint water to 1 teasp salt as this is like tear fluid and the salt will help to cleanse. Use an eye bath and bathe the eye. Do this every hour. Hygiene is important if it is an eye infection and do not use face cloths or towels only disposable ones. If it is an allergy, then the anti histamine will help. Your Pharmacy will be able to diagnose it for you.

yes it mite but also you may need is eye drops and a cream for the allergy ? but you need to really know how it happen so you can get the best treatment. call your doctor or go to the emergency room. but it could be any thing that made this happen to you. like was it you eaten something was it a new soap , i hope your going to be OK take care and another thing wash your hands and after that run water over your face to keep your face clean

The Trickster
Yes they would also so would eye wash!
