In brief: Pro topic or elidel (pimecrolimus)

Psoriaisis only on the eyelids would be very u usual.
It is more liklely belpharitis, contact dermatitis, or seborrheic dermatitis. Patch testing may identify an allergen. Steroid should be use only for 1-3 days. If this is chronic prescription Protopic or Elidel (pimecrolimus) could help without the side effects of steroid use on the lids.
