Puffy under eye, itchy rash under arms, congested. Slow onset. Lasted only noon till next morning. No food allergy. I work at day care center.

Has this resolved?: Sounds like an allergy- maybe a cream or perfume/body spray/detergent or something that you touched with your fingers (then touched your eye/arms, etc.). If you are not taking other medicines and are not allergic, Benadryl (diphenhydramine) can be helpful. You should see a doctor if symptoms persist. Think about anything new you may have been exposed to- whether at the day care or at home. ...Read more

Eye Lid Dermatitis: Eyelid eczema is usually due to an irritation from a cosmetic or other substance, but can be due to allergy (allergic contact dermatitis), rubbing (neurodermatitis), or atopic dermatitis. Eyelid skin is different from skin elsewhere. For one thing, it is very thin, so irritants and allergens penetrate the skin rapidly. You can try 1% Hydrocortisone but you have to find the cause. ...Read more

In contact lens wearer, another more serious form of conjunctivitis can occur often necessitating removal of the contact lens. The cornea may be irritated if the condition is severe enough.

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?

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

Rashes: Rashes are impossible to diagnose over the computer so I am afraid you will need to see the Dr or a health care provider for an exam. The eyelids especially needs special care with rashes as the skin is thin and traditional steroid creams may not be recommended. Best wishes. ...Read more

Have had itchy patch on one eyelid for a couple months now. Skin flakes at times. Had same issue with a few years ago. No issue with eye just eyelid.?

Should be examined: This"sounds" like seborrheic dermatitis- usually quite easily treated using a Q-tip and a soapy solution of either Head and Shoulders or Selsun (selenium) shampoo(assuming you are not allergic to these). Apply the soapy solution to the flaking areas, leave on 5-7 minutes and then rinse off with warm water. If not improving within 1 week-see a dermatologist. ...Read more
