Eyelid Dermatitis: Eyelid dermatitis is a skin inflammation that occurs on the eyelids. It can create dry, flaky skin on the eyelids or an itchy rash, depending on the exact nature of the inflammation. It can affect eyesight if the eyelid becomes swollen or if the skin flakes off and irritates the eye. This condition is usually caused by an allergic reaction. Treatment is a topical rx cortisone like Cloderm cream.
