I have had a constant battle with these awful symptoms since early last year. I have itchy, swollen eyelids and the outer corner of eyelid and surrounding skin is super sensitive. I even have large red dry/itchy patches on my temples.
It starts itching, but when I have tried to treat it, the eyelid and skin will turn red and have an awful burning sensation. I have tried every topical treatment imaginable, my doc even prescribed Elidel - and it made symptoms worse. The area then becomes extremely dry and flakey - and any kind of moisturizer only causes further burning and itching. Even sensitive skin formulas, etc. Please - what is wrong with me? And, what is causing this? I have stopped wearing eye shadow and makeup on my eyelid, but I work in the fashion industry, and this is causing me a big problem! I take an antihistamine to try and stop the itching, but it does not help. For once and for all, I would like this to just clear up and not come back!
