That sounds awful! I would recommend taking allergy medication in the mornings? Have you tried anything?

Benadryl or Claritin workday for me. You should consult a doctor first

I have bad seasonal allergies on May 11, 2016 @ 11:45 am

My eyes run all day, itch, get so red and sore and swollen. Tdhe absolute best is Aerius. It's VERY expensive but OTC and comes in kids' formula. I've used so many brands including Claritin 24 hour (total joke, it doesn't even last me 12 hours). I also have to use Visine Allergy 8 in 1. Depending on her age she may not be keen to use eye drops too but for allergies that affect the eyes a lot this is excellent to use in addition to a pill. The trick is to a) watch the weather chanel /app to see what is in the air that particular day and journal it so you can find out exactly what it is she is so sensitive to. It could be multiple things. And b) have her take a pill every morning whether she feels allergic or not to ward off the symptoms. It's easier to keep them away than to treat the symptoms after she gets them.
I am a fan of buying the cheapest version of what works but when it comes to allergies I can't stress enough that although Aerius is expensive, it works so much better than ANY name brand or store brand product I have ever tried, hands down. Maybe her allergies are not as bad as mine and you can find a cheaper version (just make sure it has the ingredients needed in the right dose for her - ask a pharmacist or read the box/ bottle for the symptoms it covers). Lastly, especially for a child, DO NOT get the kind that makes you drowsy, for obvious reasons but also because the ingredients that make you drowsy can also make a child (especially) really wired up like they're on tons of caffeine, instead of tired. I hope you find something that works and that it doesn't break the bank. I feel for your child; seasonal allergies are not fun at all and interfere with enjoying the outdoors. Good luck!

I meant to say - depending on her age, if she's really young and if you haven't already done so, take her to her dr first. It may or may not be seasonal allergies. It could be another condition altogether or if it is allergies it could be something from indoors as well that you might have to change.

I use Reactine and also HydraSense, but it's always good to get a doctors opinion. It took me a little bit to find the allergy pill that worked best for me.

Do take her to see a doctor who can refer her for allergy tests as he can figure out exactly what might be causing the allergies and avoidance could be a solution! In the meantime for relief, ask your local pharmacist and they should be able to advise.

Hope she feels better soon!

I will suggest taking her to your family doctor and asking for a referral to see an allergist for a full test. My daughters both have allergies and eczema. It was very difficult but once they got the test done, the allergist was able to match them to the right medication.
