My eyes have been itching for 2-3 weeks now not

Patient

Q: My eyes have been itching for 2-3 weeks now. not daily. my right eye gets very itchy and when I itch it too much a clear bubble thing appears in the back corner??? also I was rubbing and itching it last night and it became VERYZ swollen above and below my eye almost to my cheek. it's still like this after a nights sleep. I went to the doctor about 2 weeks ago after the clear bubble appeared and he didn't seem concerned at all and gave me set drops and a z-pack. I haven't been taking the eye drops 4x/day for 7 days, more like once or twice every other. I started taking Claritin tablets about every other day or two and they seemed to help the itchiness calm down the next day. but now I'm just worried as to why the swelling from last night had yet to go down.
