I am dying!! Have been all week, runny nose, and my eyes are so itchy that I want to take them out and wash them. Good to know why, at least I'm not crazy! Thanks.

Riverdog, try some allergy eye drops. I have good luck with Opcon A by Baush & Lomb (spelling?). The store brand equivalent is good too.

Eyedrops help. I even use dog eyedrops (for my dogs)...

Thanks for the advice, guys! I guess I'll have to get some eye drops and not rely on drinking beer to take my mind off. . .!

"Westside Pollen" would be a good gang name.
