I use at home waxing strips and now underneath my eyebrow on my eyelid it's red and burning it's been like that all day. What should I do?

Well, I think it is: Safe to assume that something in the waxing strips was an irritant to your eyes. Your description suggests the irritation is limited to your eyelid; better than chemical injury to the eye itself! Start with warm, moist compresses (clean cloth) on eye for 15 minutes every couple hours. Try some OTC low dose (1 or 2.5%) hydrocortisone cream/gel meant for the eye, applied VERY carefully. Worse: to Doc ...Read more

The: The blurring of vision you are describing could be caused by a large list of reasons ranging from benign dry eye to a more serious blood flow issue. It is important to note if you are experiencing any other neurologic symptoms during these episodes such as headache, nausea, numbness/weakness of your arms or legs, dizzyness, ect. These could be signs of a blood flow issue and warrants a prompt workup with your pcp.

The fact it clears with Aspirin is unusual and may or may not be related to your condition. Dry eye can also cause blurry vision when you wake up. This usually resolved with blinking or consistant artificial tears. Other corneal issues have also been known to cause blurryness in the am.

I'm sorry I can not give you a set answer. You do need a proper eye examination by an ophthalmologist to rule out corneal or retinal problems. If the eye examination is normal, the doctor may want to refer you to a neuro-ophthalmologist for a further evaluation. ...Read more

What are some remedies for burnt eyebrows after waxing them, what to do?

What are some remedies for burnt eyebrows after waxing them, what to do?

Depending on what: Section or part of your eyebrow you 'burnt' with wax. Usually hot wax is intolerable to apply if it's that hot. Did you end up waxing it off or not? If you singed your hairs and they are still there, they will continue growing. If you waxed them off, they will eventually grow back in 4-6 weeks. If you burnt your skin or have a 2nd degree burn from it, it will take much longer & you must treat it. ...Read more

I've been using cold-pressed, virgin castor oil on my eyebrows and eyelids x3 nights. Now, I'm worried about ricin poisoning. Should I be worried?

No: There is no need to worry about ricin being in the castor oil, compared to all the other things we have to worry about in life. Castor oil may not be needed nor useful... which means one should investigate to see if castor oil has been truly proven to help in the way one is using it (castor oil has been around a long time and has many myths about it). ...Read more

Muscle spasm: What you describe sounds like a common condition called orbicularis oculi myokymia. It's a type of spasm in muscles around the eye. It tends to present in times of stress (no known relation to masturbation). It can cause the vision in that eye to vibrate, as well. If symptoms are severe or not resolving over time, you should see an ophthalmologist. ...Read more

I've developed a small red itchy rash on both cornesr of my eyelids. My eyebrows sometimes itch as well. I have VERY sensitive skin, what should I do?

Sounds like eczema: I'd start with hydrocortisone to the affected areas twice a day. You can get the OTC 1% ointment at any pharmacy or market. The key is to apply once after a 10-15 minute shower, and a separate time later in the day. A moisturizer can also help. Vanicream, Eucerin, Cetaphil...these are all good options for a moisturizer. It can go on separately from the medication. This should help! ...Read more
