I only have inflammation when I have allergies. I have seasonal allergies and I get very puffy, itchy, watery eyes during spring and summer. I basically get all of the eye allergy symptoms
I take antihistamine allergy medications but they do little for my eye inflammation. I'm also using anti-inflammatory, allergy eye drops. I was using the OTC ones first but they were causing some side effects like stinging.
I mentioned this to my doctor and he prescribed me a very good eye drop for eye allergies. I love it. It stops the discharge, itching and inflammation quickly.
