Eyelid dermatitis is a skin inflammation that occurs on the eyelids. It can create dry, flaky skin on the eyelids or an itchy rash, depending on the exact nature of the inflammation. It can affect eyesight if the eyelid becomes swollen or if the skin flakes off and irritates the eye.
This condition is usually caused by an allergic reaction. Treatment is a topical rx cortisone like Cloderm cream. Read more
Eyedrops: Check to see if you are using a new skin product, as this can cause a reaction like this. If this has just popped up spontaneously, you can try using artificial tears 4x/day in both eyes. If that doesn't work, there is a OTC drop: 'Zatidor', which works well. You can also use Benadryl, (diphenhydramine) but this will cause drowsiness. If these therapies do not work, consider seeing an eye doctor. Read more
