Glad to hear you are alright.
I have LOTS of problems with allergies, and the 2 big things that happen to me is sneezing non-stop and having the corner of my eyes that are close to my nose itch constantly.
Well it was Thursday morning and I was reading the BBS while eating my Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Sure enough, my eye started itching. I thought that I had gotten off all the cinnamon on my hand (I know I don't eat with a spoon, so sue me
). Well, the next thing I know, my eye was on fire.
I had to take out my contact and put my head in the bathroom sink which I had filled with water. Flushing my eye worked and after about an initial 5 minutes of discomfort, everything was okay.
So, I know how easy it is to get things in your eye if you're not careful.
