The condition in which the conjunctiva of the eye becomes inflamed due to an allergic reaction is called Allergic Conjunctivitis. When the eyes of a person come in contact with dust, pollen, animal dander, or mold spores etc., (commonly known as allergens) they can turn red, itchy and watery. The presence of these allergens leads to the production of a chemical called histamine, which is produced to fight against perceived threats that are actually harmless and can cause this condition. This condition is mostly prevalent in young adults and children.
