I have terrible itchiness and scaliness around my eyes. I am 49 and taking synthroid (thyroxine). Any ideas? I am not using new soap or make up.

In brief: Itchiness and eyes
You may have a form of blepharitis - similar to seborrhea of the scalp.
Try using a warm washcloth. If that doesn't help - your doctor can check to make sure its not an infection and if not - prescribe some low potency steroid cream that should clear it up.

In brief: Allergies?
It's that time of year. Lots of pollen.
It could also be eczema. See your pcp.
