dry eye lids?

DRY EYELIDS: How long has this been going on? Does it itch? If you are a woman, the most likely reason is a new eye cosmetic. Then there is facial soap or new shampoo or hair rinse.

Dermatitis: This could be a contact dermatitis if itchy, which could benefit from a short course of topical steroid ointment. As dr litt mentioned cosmetics could be the inciting factor. Hypoallergenic cosmetics will be less likely to induce this, such as clinique or almay.
