I have a spot on my eyelid that looks like a dry skin patch. It is slightly raised. Should I be concerned?

In brief: Steroid cream
I would try spot treatment for a week or so with otc Hydrocortisone cream.
If it doesn't go away then you should definitely have it checked.

In brief: Dermatology consult
Any skin lesion that is new should be checked out by dermatologist---especially since sun-exposed.
May just be dry skin , but cancer can be sneaky! better to be safe.... Hope it's all good!

In brief: Eyelid rash
Likely this is seborrheic dermatitis.
I'd start with selsun blue shampoo with aloe to the area twice a day for a week. If no improvement, may need a skin biopsy.
