My husband has been dealing with this same issue for 1.5 years now. He's been to multiple docs, taken allergy shots, and every eyedrop that has been prescribed. All with only temporary relief.
Below is a typical day. This day happens 3-4 times per week:
1) he wakes with no symptoms
2) he works at various construction sites, various environments, inside & outdoors. No issues.
3) he comes home, immediately showers or washes his face.
4) his eyes then "flare" when he gets out of the shower.
"Flare" = whites are now blood red, they are inflamed and swollen, they have a clear fluid that comes out (not tears, not pus), they itch slightly, they hurt, they have light sensitivity.
Sometimes this happens to just one eye, but often it's both.
With eye drops and an hour using a cold compress, they Flare dies down.
After 2 hours, it's usually done for the day.
Can ANYONE please help to give ideas what this could be?
We've changed detergents, soaps, shampoos, we've actually moved houses since this started, he's changed job sites, started full-on allergy shots (7 months in now) and no relief.
He takes a steriod eyedrop + lubricant eyedrop + oral allergy meds, all prescribed.
