Re-occurring eye reactions. Both eyes swell - lids & area, then rash. Lasts 2-3 weeks. Not redness in eye or nasal congestion. Allergy tests show cat?

In brief: See a dermatologist

You need a prescription calcineurin inhibitor cream or ointment.
Do not use cortisones on eyelids. Meanwhile get rid of the cat. How about a dog or maybe a pet rock?

In brief: Eyelid eczema

This can be from contact dermatitis or environmental allergies.
If you are not exposed to cats, then you need to have a patch test to determine your contact allergens, such as make up and nail polish. A dermatologist or allergist can help.
