Eye redness due to allergies

Eye redness due to allergies

Eye redness very often occurs as a symptom of seasonal allergies. People who suffer from various allergies are familiar with the discomforts that include sneezing, coughing, tearing, and redness and itching of the eyes and nose. Allergic reactions manifest as itchy, stinging eyes and, occasionally, swelling. These symptoms are uncomfortable and impair the quality of everyday life, but it is important to know that they are not dangerous for eye health and can be alleviated.

The primary recommendation is to avoid contact with allergens that cause allergic reactions as much as possible. Most often, this refers to pollen, dust, ingredients of some creams, etc. In this case, it is particularly important to maintain proper hygiene and avoid touching the eyes with dirty hands. In addition, effective help can be found in Viset eye drops, which work quickly and significantly alleviate eye discomfort associated with allergies.

Eye redness in children

Eye redness in children

Parents are most worried about the discomforts of their children. This is understandable because children represent a vulnerable group that needs special attention. Eye pain and redness in children mostly occur as a result of clumsiness and injuries, but they can be associated with inflammation and respiratory problems.

There is generally no reason to worry because red eyes in children are mostly harmless and pass without serious complications. However, there are situations in which it is necessary to act quickly and seek medical help.

If there is an inflammatory process in the child’s body, it will be possible to see redness and irritation of the eyes. By treating the inflammation itself, these symptoms also disappear. However, in the event that red eyes are accompanied by burning and tearing, it is safest to visit a doctor because of the possibility of it being an eye disease or an eye infection that requires treatment.
