Allergic reaction to carboxymethylcellulose?

I have been told to use refresh tears post lasik surgery. However, I experience mild to severe itching of the face and scalp (sometimes neck and back) whenever I use the tears. I get some relief if I begin taking my Allegra but not complete. I am wondering if this is a possible reaction to the main ingredient: carboxymethylcellulose?
