Sudden eye inflamation and sinus



Male, age 57, has had 3 severe and sudden onset "allergy" attacks. Sinus congestion, draining and severe swelling and tearing in one eye (sensitive to light). Occurred in summer, fall and winter with full snow cover. No dietary or lifestyle changes. Usually passes in three miserable days. Severe hay fever as child and manageable (OTC) hay fever as adult. Very healthy except recently diagnosed high blood pressure (treated). Any insight appreciated.
