Up the treatment: I see in your medication list that you are taking Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) an h1 antihistamine, and were prescribed a steroid cream. You can try an over the counter h2 antihistamine Loratadine along with the above. You may need to be switched from the steroid cream to steroids by mouth, so a followup with your doctor would be the next step. If you have lip/mouth symptoms, go to Emergency Dept.
My eyelids are itchy, dry, wrinkly and swollen. Been like this on and off for past 6 mos. Never had issues before. I'm 29 years old. What would cause?
Contact allergy: If your eyeballs are not involved, your problem may be from a contact allergy to something you have used on your face especially eye makeups. Touching the lids before the nail polish has totally dried up or using a rubber applicator when you are allergic to latex may be potential allergens as well. If you have a condition known as rosacea, this may involve the lids. See Dermatologist.

You may have gotten: Some of the sunscreen in your eyes, or you may be having a reaction to another substance in the water or something you've been exposed to since then. Make sure you rinse your eyes well with cool water. You can use an over-the-counter antihistamine such as Benadryl, (diphenhydramine) Claritin, Zyrtec or Allegra, as long as you have no medical contraindication to those. If still not better, please see your doctor.See 1 more doctor answer

Blepharitis?: It could be a local inflammation of your eyelid, termed blepharitis. Pl see attached link for additional details. You may also have allergies whch can have eye-related symptoms. I would use Zyrtec (cetirizine) and saline ophthalmic solution to wash the affected eye. If the symptoms persist for 48 hrs, you should see your primary physician. Feel better!
