Itchy eyes.

Hi any one got itchy eyes . Then I get dry red patches that clear up for a day or two then start again?

At my wits end with all this.

    Hey Barney, we have spoken before I think. Yes I suffer with dry, itchy eyes which then become really sore, all the time. I have artificial tears, eye drops, and eye ointment to treat the really sore areas. I' m hoping its something that will settle with the hrt as I'm sick of it too. But dont worry, its all part of this lovely process! XXX

      Hi Barney, the ointment I get for my eyes is on prescription. I think Boots and larger pharmacys have numerous eye ointments you can buy over the counter if you tell the pharmacist the problem they can advise you what to get. Some Piriton anti-hystamine might also help. XXX

      Try Vasaline on the dry patches of skin but I really think you need to go and see your dr. They may want to prescribe a hydracortisone cream for outside skin and eye drops and/or ointment for sore corners of the eyes! Better safe than sorry anything you buy yourself may make it worse thats why you should see the dr. XXX

      My advice to that is find a dr who is! There may be another dr at your surgery who is more sympathetic. Ask one of the receptionists they will probably be able to tell you. But I would not tolerate that attitude not in this day and age. XXX

    I have terrible itchy eyes  every day. I get up each morning and walk my dog my eyes water a little and then itch the rest of the day. I do not get red patches though. Do your lower legs itch also? i could scratch the skin off my shins. x
