Eye lid dermatitis: Nail products such as nail polish, artificial nails and other hair products such as bleaching agents, hair dyes, perfumed hair sprays, and shampoos can also lead to eye dermatitis thus are also considered to be eyelid rash causes. Cosmetics, makeup, moisturizers, sunscreen containing harsh chemicals and ophthalmic medications such as antibiotics, beta-blockers, and contact lens solution are causes.
