I am having been itchy for more than a week, they are watery and sore. I know I'm not supposed to scratch them but they are that itchy I can't help it and sometimes when I'm sleeping I wake up scratching them without knowing. I have been using over the counter eye drops but they do not seem to be helping either. I need your help please I can hardly sleep with them being itchy and sore. I rinse them more often and put eye drops but it's not helping, please I don't know what to do.

It sounds like this is an allergy and you should try antihistamine eye medication. The one most commonly found over the counter is drops that contain sodium cromogly
