Have you tried wearing an N95 rated mask when you go outside? I used to do that when my allergies were bad. The mask covers your nose and mouth; your eyes would still be exposed, but you could use antihistamine eye drops like Zaditor or Alaway (same medication, different brand). Wearing a mask may look weird but it's very effective in blocking allergens from your airways.

In the long term, have you thought about allergy shots (allergen immunotherapy)? I've been on them for over 5 years now and for me they've been amazingly effective.

Take care and good luck. Judy
