Default What can I do for swollen eyes, ragweed ??

Never had this happen before

Was bushogging my SIL/Daughters place yesterday for dove field/deer food plots and while on the tractor my eyes started itching

Well by end of day my eyes very swollen and when I got home took a shower and popped some Benadryl and that seemed to help

Swelling has gone down some but little bit itching and teary some too

Will be in drivers ed car all day today with teenagers so afraid to take Benadryl, seems to put me to sleep very easy

Waitress at restaurant I am eating breakfast eye showed me some streile eye drops she uses for itching due to pollen Going to get some of that before I start my day

Zithromax is decent but Benadryl always worked the best for reactions

Claritin D (the one with pseudoephedrine in it) every 12 hours along with 800 MG ibuprofen every 6. That’s the anti inflammatory rate for ibuprofen, and should help greatly.

I'm sensitive to ragweed, dust, pine and oak pollen, and probably other varieties as well.
Flonase helps me a great deal. No sleepiness or any other side effects that I'm aware of.

You were properly protected with full coverage safety glasses and a dust wrap, covering the mouth and nose, right? That's what the local lawn crews who do that work all day are wearing.

No, rag weed will only make it worse.
