Allergy season is upon us and we know that red eyes may give some of you concerns about possible covid related conjunctivitis ( pink eye ).
Covid conjunctivitis may present with red watery eyes, but will most often be associated with fever, respiratory symptoms and possibly the lack of taste and smell.
While allergic conjunctivitis may also cause red watery eyes, the main symptom is itchy eyes. This is of great concern these days because it creates more face touching. To reduce the itch and the temptation to touch your face and eyes, use cool compresses and any of the following nonprescription eye drops: Alaway, Zaditor or Pataday.
