Hi, welcome to the forum, it typically suggests atopic dermatitis with allergic conjunctivitis which is exaggerated or precipitated during cold season or timing. This condition is sometimes associated with asthma.

The triggering factors like dust, fog, pollens etc. can cause the precipitation of these symptoms. Hence, you need to maintain a diary of tings you are and you are not allergic to. A vigorous search for allergen is required.

A careful Allergen-specific testing includes Skin testing, Serum tests for allergy, Allergen challenge and as well as Evaluation for concurrent conditions like Sinusitis and Asthma is necessary and it directs further steps for management. Once, the allergen is known, you need to prevent further exposure to it.

Treatment of the attack includes oral anti histaminic and topical low potent glucocorticoids against prescription.  

I suggest you to consult allergy specialist. Take care and regards.
