Protect your eyes from airborne allergens outdoors by wearing wraparound-style sunglasses. Don't rub your eyes if they itch. Eye rubbing releases more histamine and makes your allergy symptoms worse. Use plenty of artificial tears to wash airborne allergens from your eyes. Ask your eye doctor which brands are best for you. Cut down your contact lens wear or switch to daily disposable lenses to reduce the build-up of allergens on your lenses.
Shower before bedtime and gently clean your eyelids to remove any pollen that could cause irritation while you sleep.

Diphenhydramine, chlorpheniramine, cetirizine and clemastine will cause drowsiness, whilst fexofenadine and loratadine will cause less drowsiness. Terfenadine and astemizole won't cause any side effects but they do interact with some of the antifungal and antibiotic medications. Otherwise, corticosteroid hormone is used to reduce the inflammation and itching in the nasal passages.
Usually, inflammation occurs together with the nasal allergy. Actually, our body can secrete this hormone by itself from the adrenal gland. It controls the sensitivity of our body's immune system. If the level of this hormone in our body is too high, it may cause our immune system to become inert to attacks from viruses or bacteria.
