Mild Irritation

I have used kajal/kohl for 7 years and there was never any problem. However when I recently had a case of allergic conjunctivitis, the doctor asked me to stop using kajal completely. I wish to be able to use kajal once in a while, definitely not for daily use. The last two times I applied kajal, I had mild irritation in the eyes after removing it. I do not understand this as I used it for 7 years without any problem. I do not want to go back to daily usage, but can I use kajal occasionally?
