soothing the eyes

hi guys
has anyone got any suggestions about what is good,
for soothing sore puffy eyes.
tis the time of year for me to react to pollen :(
i also have exma(recent thing,stress induced apparently)
and where i have STUPIDLY scratched my eyes
the eye lids look like i have been up all night crying. :(
i have taken my hayfever tabs this morning,and although
it has reduced the symptoms,i'm left looking rough.
would anyone have any suggestions,or fellow
sufferers,any cures.?
ideas would be great,thanks.
:)

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Hi Willow. How about eyedrops... something like this perhaps?

Or if your looking for a quick remedy just to cool them a little, how about a couple of cold tea bags placed over your eyes? Might help to ease the discomfort a little.

Failing that, I'd take a trip to the docs or Boots the Chemists - see if they can recommend anything.

Good luck, and hope it gets better soon :)

thank you for the link.
the tea bags sound like a good idea,as it's
the lids that are swollen(sorry i didn't explain)
still the drops sound nice,and as i'm going to pop out later
i will see if i can get some,
