Rash with redness around eye. Is this ALLERGIC REACTION?

Resolved Question:

Hello...My name is Devin Don and would like to begin with huge "Thank you " for any background/insight you can give me regarding what may be happening to my body and how I can potentially prevent it from happening again/helping me fix the issue now.

Attached you will see an image of my face and will notice redness around the eyes. It feels as if it a rash or an allergic reaction to something I may have eaten, touched, etc... It is itchy and dry just above my eye lid and below my eyebrow.

I am allergic to poison ivy and just learned that "mango" sap, skin, leaf is a part of the same family (Urishol). Recently, I received fresh mangos froma colleague and some had the actual sap still on the skin. I am not positive if this instigated the issue but may definitely play role in my swollen, stuffy, red face. 

I also sprayed chemicals in my yard to prevent ticks, bugs, fleas, etc... and may have sprayed some chemicals into my face.

When it comes to prescribed medication, I take 2 forms of pain killers. 10/325 perc and 20 mg oxy. 20mg taken twice daily and perc taken as needed for breakthrough.

Thank you for your query at
I can understand your concern.
I can see the swelling around the eyes, and it definitely got triggered by the allergen that you mentioned.
As of now, you need to take Tab. Claritin ( Loratadine ) 10 mg once daily for 3 days, and the swelling should come down. If not you may have to take cortisone, but we will discuss about it later.
Let me know if claritin helps,
Feel free to discuss further.
