Hi Doc, since 1995 I've had this problem of extreme itchiness in and around the Lacrimal Caruncle. The itchiness is not limited to this part of the eye but also extends to the eyelids and the outer corner at times.
I saw a local specialist and I was advised after extensive tests that its nothing more than some sort of an allergy. The solution, use antihystermines, artificial tears and keep eyes clean and wash with cool water. Fair enough.
Does this mean I have to take anti-hystermines all my life? Is there any permanent cure for this? My Lacrimal Caruncle, over the years have grown some additional tissue from the highly tempting rubbing that goes on every 2 days or so.
I've searched the net but the answer so far remains the same (anti-hystermines etc).
I really hope to get some solution for this.
Thanks very much and much appreciated.
