Tnx alot!I'm not sure how asthma would be specifically related to allergic conjunctivitis in your eyes (but I also have both)... besides, itchy, swollen, redness I also get a stringy mucus in my eyes (almost like pink-eye )... my best advice is to use ALLERGY EYE DROPS (I don't think allergy pills help too much unless you also have regular/seasonal allergies) but try VISINE-A (NOT visine-a.c.), Bausch+Lomb Opcon-A, there is also a whole new set of allergy eye drops on the market now like Zaditor (which use a different drug than the other ones I mentioned). These allergy eye drops help with the itchiness, redness, swelling. I never leave the house without it!!! Hope this helps.

Did your doctor explain this to you? There are various types of conjunctivitis caused by the inflection of bactaria or virus from this. Allergic conjunctivtis may caused by the airborne spread of viruses through sneezing and coughing. I guass asthma may partly destory your immunity and make your eyes are more easy to get inflected by the viruses. Good luck to you!

Allergic conjunctivitis is a kind of virus inflection.I guess that perhaps asthma partly low your immunity and make your eyes inflected more easily. Some treatments to conjunctivitis.
