I was never allergic to anything when I was younger, I recently had a blood testing and it came out that I'm allergic to dogs(minor) and cockroaches(which invest this place). One night after having more then a few drinks I began to itch my eye in the night, it basically burned and wouldn't stop itching. That morning I woke up with my eye completley shut which took a while before I was able to open it again, I noticed I had brownish "boogers" in my eye and that whenever I itched it, it would flare up again. It's had minor flare ups when it's itched but I had a gnarly one last night after drinking a little. What is it? What can I do to stop flaring? Can I provide more information to you? Thank you for your concern and help.

  • 1. Start by getting rid of the source of your allergies - mix some boric acid (or borax bleach available in the laundry aisle) with some sugar and put it in the corners of your home to help get rid of the roaches (if you can't afford fumigation). Don't do this if you have pets or children. 2. Get something to help control the allergy symptoms. Benydryl should not be taken with alcohol and not during the day if you plan on driving. You can find other daytime allergy control meds (each person responds differently): Claritin, Allegra, etc. 3. The brown stuff could be a few things, pretty hard to tell without examining your eyes. You could have conjuntivitis or iritis. If you can, go to the doctor to get this looked at - some infections get pretty serious. If it is conjunctivitis, your doctor will prescribe you some opthalmic erythromycin cream that you put in your eyes. Alternatively (not the best alternative) there are OTC antibiotic drops for this problem at your local pharmacy. 4. Use a warm wet facecloth on your eyelids - be careful not to rub, just place it on the affected eye to give it relief. Best wishes

  • If you've been tested and found to be allergic to roaches, then you should take precautions to avoid those flare ups. You said you woke up and had irritated eyes? If you have a roach infestation, they are probably in and around your bed as well. I would definitely attempt to lay down roach motels, disinfect everywhere you can, and wash your bed sheets OFTEN.Also...don't rub your eyes! If they itch, use a wet cloth press against closed eye to soothe irritation.Conjunctivitis is fairly common, but some cases can lead to damage to your vision. You should make an appointment with your eye doctor as they can give you a better diagnosis and prescribe medication as needed.Austin Optometrist
