Atopic Dermatitis: Atopic dermatitis, an immune/allergic disorder, can produce eczema on the skin, as well as red swollen itchy eyelids, and a rash. However, a simple contact allergy, unrelated to an immune disorder can produce similar findings. See your ophthalmologist and perhaps an allergist as well to look into it. ...Read more

Ive 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?

Ive 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

Itchy red, alligator like feeling, swollen rash on cheeks, neck & chest. Swollen eyelids. Dr. Said allergic reaction, steroid medication is not helpin?

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. ...Read more

How long does the red bulls-eye symptom of lyme's disease rash last?

Days to months: Erythema migrans, the bulls-eye rash unique to lyme, appears within 3-30 days after a bite & lasts several days to several months. However, no more than 1/2 and probably less than 1/3 of those with lyme report a bulls-eye rash. If you have it you have lyme, but not having it does not rule out lyme in any way.
