In brief: Eye lid allergy

The eyelid skin is the thinnest skin on humans, and is prone to becoming irritated by chemicals that will not cause problems on other areas of skin, like the face, or arms.
A skin allergy, to hair sprays or nail polish, can cause itching, swelling and redness on eyelids. You need only to use the spray once or week to have the allergy. It could also be eyelid rosacea? You may a skin doctor

In brief: Blepharitis-dandruff

This is caused by blepharitis or dandruff of the eyelids.
It is typically caused by a staph infection that is almost always curable with antibiotic ointment or eyedrops. Prevention is best accomplished by using one of the over the counter lid scrub formulas such as sterilid foam or occusoft cleansing medicated pads. No tears baby shampoo is an older treatment in scrubbing the closed eyelids.
