For a few months the skin on my eyelids and just above my eyes has been flaking. It never itches, but sometimes it stings. I've had it once before about 5 months ago, but that time it went away in about a week and was not as bad as it is now.

I have also noticed unexplained bruises, and sometimes get prickly heat which I have never got before.

Does anyone have any ideas what it could be, and if so, how to treat it?

  • Hi. Did you make an doctor's appointment the last time this happened? If not, you might need to make one; unexplained bruising is not good, and I'm not sure if the flaking of the eyelids and prickly heat is connected, but it wouldn't hurt to find out....I have all kinds of symptoms that nobody thinks is related too, so don't feel bad. Good luck, and let us know what you find out.
