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

Dr thinks I am coeliac. Would this explain itchiness all over body, losing eyebrows, thinning hair and big scales on upper eyelids and forehead?

Dr thinks I am coeliac. Would this explain itchiness all over body, losing eyebrows, thinning hair and big scales on upper eyelids and forehead?

Possibly right: I'm assuming you're asking about celiac disease. This is a disease in which certain foods cause the body to attack itself. So symptoms can appear anywhere. The most common symptoms are abdominal cramping and nausea. More and more patients are found to have it who have symptoms that are not intestinal, like rashes. You should have bloodwork done. It is worth a trial of a gluten free diet. ...Read more

My eye has been watering and it sometimes gets red but it's mainly watery and sometimes feels itchy what can this mean&eye drops don't seem to work?

Possible blockage: Watery eyes come in many forms: from reflex tearing from dryness, wind, cold air; from allergies to environmental conditions; from photosensitivity; some types of headache; from infections; from eyelid malpositions; and from a partially blocked or blocked nasolacrimal duct. The latter two may be the cause but an exam is necessary to understand what your tearing is due to. I hope this helps. ...Read more

What could be wrong if my left eye is red!  it looks like sore eyes and is a bit itchy but not so teary! could this mean an infection or anything?

Could be infection: A viral eye infection, which is contagious, can cause one or both eyes to be very red, itch, swell, and tear (usually a clear discharge). The symptoms may get worse quickly. Cool compresses can help, and an eye doctor may provide eye drops to help symptomatically. A broken blood vessel on the eye surface can look terrible, but is usually harmless. Many things can cause a red eye, so get an exam. ...Read more

Eyelid edema: Following intense emotional situations with crying, runny nose, and lots of wiping eyelids and nose secretions, the eyelids often swell, eyes look red, and the ocular surface may be slightly irritated. Mucous is generated by the eye in response to the irritation. Sometimes contamination can be introduced into the eye with all the wiping. Not usually an infection results, but if worse, see eye doc. ...Read more
