Home Remedies for Itchy Eyes

Have you felt that irresistible urge to rub and rub your itching eyes till your eyes ache! Chances are high that you’ve experienced itchy eyes at some point in your life.

In fact, having an itchy sensation in and around the eyes is a very common problem and one that can be really frustrating and uncomfortable.

The symptoms associated with itchy eyes are: burning sensation in the eyes, watery eyes, inflamed eyelids, redness in the eyes, discharge from the eyes and increased sensitivity to light (1).

Itchy eyes or ocular pruritis as it is medically termed is mainly due to an allergic reaction or some kind of infection.

Yes, our eyes too are prone to allergies just like the other parts of the body. Eye allergies occur when the body overreacts to some factor.

itching in eyes

The immune system produces antibodies that cause your eyes to release chemical substances like histamines. These substances are mainly responsible for all the symptoms mentioned above. Other causes include dry eyes, use of contact lenses, improper eye hygiene, use of expired eye cosmetics and some foreign substance in the eyes, such as dust or sand (2).

The problem can be recurring for those who frequently touch or rub their eyes. Also, the itching sensation worsens in a high-polluted environment or during the allergy season. It is also important to find the source of the trigger as in most allergies so as to avoid its recurrence. Eye allergies can be seasonal or perennial. The treatment options and self help remedies recommended for eye allergies are similar to nasal allergies.

It is important to treat itchy eyes quickly, as leaving your eye untreated can lead to further complications and increase your risk of eye damage.

For instant relief, you can try some easy natural treatments. Many of these remedies use readily available ingredients from your kitchen. Just make sure whatever you put in your eyes is hygienic and clean.

However, if the problem is severe, recurrent or caused by an underlying condition, consult your eye care professional. Health experts recommend determining the cause of itchy eyes before looking for the solution.

Here are the top 10 home remedies for itchy eyes.

A cool, moist clean washcloth is the best remedy for itchiness that is a result of some kind of allergy. It also helps alleviate dryness as well as irritation. Not only are cold compresses effective, but they are easy to do and very economical. You can alternate between warm and cold compresses also.

You can use either of the methods below 3 or 4 times a day.

  • The simplest way to do this is to soak a cloth in ice cold water, wring it out and place it over your eyes. Remove after 5 minutes and repeat a few more times.

Due to its powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-allergenic effects, chamomile tea can be used as a cold compress or as an eyewash to help relieve itchy eyes. It inhibits the release of histamine, which helps prevent an allergic reaction that can lead to itchiness in the eyes.

Chamomile also reinvigorates tired eyes and leaves them feeling fresh and sparkly.

  • Steep 1 chamomile tea bag in a cup of hot water for 5 minutes. Remove the tea bag, then allow the tea to cool. Use the cool tea as an effective eyewash, 2 or 3 times a day.

3. Cucumber

Cucumbers are real cool veggies as they have many medicinal properties and are also used as an active ingredient in many beauty products.

Additional Tips

  • To control eye itching, avoid visiting areas where there are known allergens.
  • Include carrots and spinach juice in your diet to improve your eye health.
  • Consider taking vitamin A and beta-carotene supplements for overall eye health. Consult your doctor first.
  • Wear eyeglasses or sunglasses to protect your eyes when going out in the sun.
  • Use artificial tears to refresh your eyes when they feel dry.
  • Take breaks during long tasks to let your eyes rest. Follow the 20-20-20 rule of gazing at a distance of 20 feet for 20 seconds every 20 minutes of eye straining work.
  • Avoid blowing air into your eyes while using hair dryers, car heaters, air conditioners or fans.
  • Try to remain indoors when the pollen count in the environment is high. Close the windows and use the air conditioner instead of the fan as there are more chances of pollen and spores being drawn inside.
  • Keep dust mites at bay by using fresh clean pillow covers. Also, expose mattresses, pillows, and other bedding to the sun to kill microbes. Replace very old bedding materials with new ones.
  • If you don’t get relief, consult an eye specialist immediately.

  1. awesome TYou I just bathed my eye with milk & WOW It honestly feels so Good.I THINK I May have the beginning if a STY Is there another easy home remedy? Thank You for sharing the milk with us ** A Happy Chappy **

    1. Breastmilk is even prescribing medicinally…no kidding!
      Find a friend who is breastfeeding if you are not nursing a child,,,but it is such a great solution!

    2. I have been having bad cat allergies these days and I keep having this habit of rubbing my eye. And, now I got eczema on my eyes from all the rubbing and itching! I bought some allergy eyedrops hoping that they would reduce my itching, but instead they sting and get watery. I got frustrated so I searched the web trying to find helpful info on reducing itchy eyes, but then I found this article. I tried bathing my eye in milk, (because that was the easiest method LOL) and it worked much, much better than the drops! It soothed my eye and it was really really cold, just how I wanted it to be! I also tried the cucumber once in a while too! That helps as well. Another natural, easy method! The tea bags work, but it lasts for a bit, unlike the others. But it works all right! Thx for the nice info! Now I can spend more time w/my kitties! Thx again!

      1. I have bad allergy to Cats, also. I use an eye dropper with a solution of Colloidal Silver and water. It works great! You can buy a big bottle, really cheap, on Ebay.

  2. The milk is wonderful!!!!!!!! I even let the milk drip down in my eyes and its like instant relief!!!! Thank you so much!

    1. I’m about to try it its the easiest thing i saw i hope your right thanks i have really bad
      allergy eyes they get red,puffy,icthy,burning,watery thx!!!!!!!!

  3. I found the milk helpful but when I used it the things I could see. We’re mildly grey / white it does wear off but it works a treat

  4. I’ve literally been itching my eyes for days due to hayfever and nothing worked….until I bathed them with milk! Thank you so much!

  5. Just tried the milk after searching for ways to help me…. It’s definitely taken the edge off of the itchiness and stinging but eyes are still extremely hot. Have tried eye drops a while ago and the milk actually worked better. Only down side is that I really don’t like the smell you get after (I seem to be rather sensitive to the smell of milk!) and the fact that it goes a bit sticky around your eyes. Would never have thought to try milk though, so thanks! (Not sure if its just because its cold or whether there’s a magic ingredient that actually scientifically helps but it works never the less!)

  6. it seems so many people tried milk and it worked out. I have been itching my eyes out for the last two or three days…..so let me see what mr milk can do

  7. I love the milk I took a cue tip dipped it in the milk and rubbed it around the inside of my eyes where they were itching and it stop immediately. Thanks so much .

  8. I am lactose intolerant so I didn’t have any milk. Instead I used the Green Tea and OMG I had to come say thank you. I work from home as a Lead Customer Service Agent. My job is to watch the chat room for questions and help the agents resolve issues. I am the only Lead who works on Saturday so taking the day off was not an option. With eyelids that felt like sandpaper and eyeballs that throb with each cough and then it would take my eyes at least 5 mins to recover so I had to do something quick. Thanks again!

  9. Guys we usw the salt solution back home as a tropical
    Treatment and it always works.
    to add to the milk treatment; you can even use breast milk as eye drops.
    We do that as well back home and it reduces red eyes, soothes sore eyes
    Itchy eyss etc. Good luck. And thank you.!!

    1. Sheba! I was teaching a class in
      storytelling to a group of Hmong, Laotian, Polish, & Mexican women.I had a very bad case of conjunctivitus ( “pink-eye”).my eyes were red, itchy, swollen & full of mucous..I was a mess!
      The Hmong & Laotian women told the class interpreter that in their country the cure for my problem was MOTHERS MILK!..One of the
      Mexican women was nursing her baby & offered up some her breast milk, which the interpreter
      let her squeeze into a sterile bottle, then dripped it into into my eyes…voila!..my eyes were cured in minutes–much better than prescription medicines! The women in the class clapped & laughed in joy!

  10. The milk works like magic.my child had swollen itchy eyes and it was holiday time all the nearby doctors and clinics were closed so I googled and got this site.milk saved my day.

    1. you can try any milk you want. But there is no milk like wholemeal milk. So I would say try normal milk which is easily available in supermarkets or through milkman. Hope you get better soon

I will surely tell everyone who has itchy eyes.

  21. Have had itchy eyes for some time – allergic reaction to quite a lot of things. Stumbled on this page, rushed into the kitchen dabbed on some cold milk soaked in cotton wool, and I’m sure I’m gonna sleep like a baby. Who says remedies ain’t under our noses. Thanks a million.

  22. I got itching allergy and sneezing leads to cold , get instant relief with rosewater and feels fresh . Thanx .. This problem is very common with me. But finally have some safe home remedies

  26. I return to NZ every summer and get hayfever something chronic, try everything this side of the black stump…. lasts for about 3 weeks and then just left with itchy eyes, I tried everything until I read about the milk, Hellalouya!! Thank you what a great relief…

  27. I have chronic eye inflammation and even after 7 weeks and 2 medications, I’m worse, not better. This weekend, I was going crazy with itching and tearing. Hot compresses, bathing my eyes with baby shampoo, anti-itch eye drops and other over-the-counter products the doctor had me using hadn’t worked either.. So I came to this site and tried chamomile tea bags. The relief was almost instantly. I was even able to get a good night’s sleep without that awful itching. I’m going to use the chamomile tea bags again this morning and, unfortunately, call my doctor — again.

  28. I’ve been suffering from Dry Eye’s for several months, and they can get really red and itchy at times. A while back I was not able to spend more than 10 – 15 mins on the computer without eye drops.. that stung like crazy.. or I had to just go and lie down till they felt better. I have since almost 100% recovered from this condition using a very simple remedy.
    Pop on down to your local supermarket and get some Wet Baby Wipes that have Aloe Vera in them.
    Just wipe your eyes as often as needed.
    I was vastly improved after just a couple of days.. and within a week I almost never need drops anymore.
    My eyes go all day without itching.. and i can work again on the puter.
    I was so happy with the results I decided to make this posting on several websites.
    Try it.. you cant lose on this, just make sure you get the ones with Aloe Vera extract.. others dont work as well.
    All the best… Gary

  29. After seeing good comments for milk i have tried for my itchy eyes. Amazing….. within 2 minutes i got a good relief. Thanks.

  30. Simple way to get rid of itchy eyes, heat steam process. 3 to 4 drops of peppermint or spearmint oil, 2 to 3 pinch of salt mixed in hot pan of water. Take a towel cover it over your head, over the pan. Just inhale for a couple of minutes with your eyes open. Do not throw away the water one you have finish. You could put it in a mist sprayer and keep on repeatedly spray it to your face from an agle, in order for the mist to get into your nostrils as well. Take deep breaths when spraying into nostrils.
    Good luck 🙂

  31. Your page has the most different kinds of solutions for eye problems – thank you! My eyes have been burning for a while and all the doctor can do is prescribe steroid eye drops that have all kinds of warnings and side effects — including blindness! Are they kidding? In spite of that, I used them for a week and I do believe the problem worsened, so I discontinued them and now I’m looking for natural solutions other than just the ice water compresses that I’ve been using. They do offer immediate though temporary relief; let’s see if cucumbers and tea bags have longer lasting effects. Thanks again!

  50. Do we have to let the milk drip in the eyes or rub the wet cloth on the eyes whilst closed? Help me i am experiencing, itching, pink, swollen, watery eyes.

    Your prompted reply is highly appreciated… Thanks to the Milk remedy.

  51. I had never thought of this before for adults. When nursing my babies, decades ago. I was told by a midwife, when the baby got infection, in it’s eyes, to squirt the baby directly in the eye. The milk is body temperature. They seem to clear up, and I don’t remember the baby being highly alarmed. Before trying this ask your functional or natural medicine doctor. They are more educated in natural remedies.

  52. I had been suffering all day with red itchy eyes. Then I thought…maybe there is a home remedy for this…came across this site…I only had almond milk but it worked…I am not suffering anymore! Thanks so much!

  57. My eyelid itching and burning has been a problem since shingles near my left eye a couple of years ago. It gets worse with stress and last night it was unbearable. I tried a used teabag cold compress, eye drops and coconut oil but temporary relief was all I could get. Just to touch eyelids with a cotton swab inflicted serious pain. Although skeptical I decided to try cold milk on a swab. Much to my surprise I got immediate relief. I did a couple of applications to clear stringy matter from eyelids then a wet application just before bed. I woke up this morning with eyelids stuck together but no pain or itching. I used a cool wet (water) compress to open eyelids and nothing all day. I will use milk again before retiring tonight as I am now sold on its effectiveness. I wish I had known about it back when I had shingles.Many thanks for the tip!
