Could this be hay fever?

My eyes are streaming and so sore I want to rip them out. I can hardly see and am constantly mopping. I am sure people think I am crying. Could I have developed a pollen allergy out of the blue? What can I do? Any help gratefully received!

Try an antihistamine and see if it helps? I take Clarityn. Expect pharmacist can recommend some eye drops too.

Thanks for responding. I will get some tomorrow. I am just surprised as I haven't had this before!

I've known people who have developed hay fever one year after not having suffered before unfortunately. It can affect my eyes like that too, definitely try an antihiamine first.
