I have started having allergy like symptoms in my eyes. They tear constantly and kind of burn. Also, the tears burn my skin around my eyes. I have tried allergy medication OTC stuff and OTC eye drops but nothing is helping. Has anyone had this and if so how did you get relief?
Thanks!

Sounds like you need to see an optometrist or opthamologist for some heavy duty eye drops if the otc drops are not working.

It must be miserable.

Same thing happened to me.. All of a sudden I developed eye allergy problems..Got eczema under my eye and a little stain from whatever was coming out in the corner. It was worse in the morning. I went to an eye doctor and he said I had allergic conjunctivitis and some dryness in my eyes...but it came out of the blue. I thought it might be related to low cortisol since I had like a .24 in the AM or maybe low B vitamin ( I think a deficiency in one of the B vitamins can make your eyes itch) It is better now but I have still some conjunctivitis in the one eye.. The doctor gave me Pataday which is an eye anti-histamine and artificial tears.. He also gave me Allrex which is a steroid which I used like a 1/4 drop.. Still not sure why it just popped up out of the blue

Mold can cause that, too.

Allergies are parasites. I got this out of the blue to one of my LLMD told me this. I wasn't sure initially but while I treated babesia my allergy symptoms mostly went away. I also saw it on the Oz show.
The other thing is that I went to my eye doctor a few weeks ago and I hadn't seen her in a few years since before lyme. I saw her and told her I have lyme but am some what better. I told her I had at times red iritated eyes and at other times oozying gel like something that really irritated me. She is not a lyme doctor but told me that in the east cost she treated a few people with lyme disease. She said whatever infection I had in my sinuses was pushed up into my eyes. One of my LLMD says it is proto and now ILADS is saying parasites and worms are number 1 co-infection.

Take care,

Interesting as I was just diagnossed with Babesia. Plus I would be shocked if I didn't have some type of intestinal parasites. I was going to try Diatomaceous Earth and then maybe follow up with another product recommended on the parasite thread.

Sounds lie it could be yeast to me. Whenever I treat yeast, my eyes burn and tear up.
