Protect: Avoid things that make you break out, soaps ; wetness. Wash your hands only when necessary. Wear gloves when needed. Wear clothes made of cotton. Bathe only with a small amount of mild unscented soap, such as dove. Keep the water temperature cool or warm, not hot! Use the medicine your doctor gave you. Use a plain moisturizer daily. Avoid scratching or rubbing the itchy area. Manage stress.

My skin below my lower lashes is swollen/red/puffy, worse in mornings. Dry, flaky skin under eyes and eyelids. Bumps on eyelids?

My skin below my lower lashes is swollen/red/puffy, worse in mornings. Dry, flaky skin under eyes and eyelids. Bumps on eyelids?

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you, however the puffiness under the eyes may be due to excessive intake of salt, try reducing your salt consumption. For dryness use an emollient like Vaseline.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
Get HPV vaccine

Dry scales under eyes, couldn't remove them with cotton so used hard courner of eye cream tube to pick them off, WILL THIS ACT CAUSE EYE SKIN TO SAG?

Eyelid skin: That skin is very sensitive and must be treated gently throughout your life. At your age, the worst thing you probably did was to irritate things quite a bit. I wouldn't recommend you ever do that again. That should not cause your skin to sag.

What is the best procedure for tightening skin under eyes? I have EXTREMELY sensitive skin so I'm worried about scarring.

Plastic surgery: Is commonly done for this. Removal of extra skin or paradoxically putting chemical implants in. I do not know why diagnosis isn't done on them since:
fat deposit changes, FLUID, wrinkling can do this but have very very different physiology and presumably different best treatments.

But first, excercize a heck of a lot til sweating profusely and see if the bags disappear. Then, it's lymphatic fluid

May be: Allergic uveitis or conjunctivitis, or simply dry eyes. Try using artificial tears four to six times a day for a couple days, and if not effective you will need to bring him to a healthcare provider for proper diagnosis and treatment. Thanks for using HealthTap.

Milk intake: Normal for toddlers to decrease milk intake as they eat more solid food. Redness under eyes unlikely due to milk. Follow up with doctor re eye redness.

Healthy kid: Stop feeling sorry for yourself and stop blaming masturbation for your condition. Your dark circles may be " allergic shiners" and allergies may be responsible for your condition. See your doctor for evaluation.
