Hello Ria, Thank you for the question.
Are you experiencing other symptoms such as red eyes, watery eyes, swollen eyelids, eye discharge, light sensitivity, or other symptoms? Complaints of itchy eyes can occur due to several health conditions so to find out the right treatment must be known first the cause of this complaint. Itchy eyes are generally caused by allergic reactions (known as allergic conjunctivitis) for example due to exposure to dust, mites, or animal hair. These complaints are usually accompanied by other complaints such as red eyes, swollen eyelids, watery eyes, and eyes becoming sensitive to light. Apart from allergic reactions, itchy eyes can also be caused by dry eyes or disorders of the Meibomian gland, the glands that produce oil that lines the surface of the eye.
There are several suggestions that you can follow:
always keep your hands clean
avoid rubbing itchy eyes
You can relieve itching complaints by compressing cold water on the eyes
Avoid exposure to dust or other air pollution
keep the house and bedroom clean
if you have animals, clean the animals and their cages regularly. Avoid exposure to animal hair
use eye drops that act as artificial tears to prevent dry eyes
It is also recommended that you consult a doctor immediately as this complaint has occurred for several days. The doctor will examine your eyes before determining the next treatment. Usually the doctor will give treatment in the form of drops and / or tablets containing antihistamines or other drugs to help relieve your symptoms.
Hopefully this information helps you.
