Could be Con­junc­tivi­tis, an in­flam­ma­tion of the con­junc­tiva, the thin layer lin­ing the in­ner lid and cov­er­ing the white of the eye.

Treat­ment ‘There are three types of con­junc­tivi­tis. While your im­mune sys­tem can usu­ally fight off vi­ral con­junc­tivi­tis, an­tibi­otic eye drops can help bac­te­rial con­junc­tivi­tis,’ says David. If the itch­i­ness is down to an al­lergy, use an­ti­his­tamine drops or tablets.

When to worry If you ex­pe­ri­ence sig­nif­i­cant pain or loss of vi­sion, seek im­me­di­ate ad­vice.
