is it eczema or is it something called blepahritis - where around the eye lash gets very dry and the skin does not peel away ( not a good description) My dd1 suffered from this a lot. All we had to do was to wipe her eyelid with a solution of warm water and a drop or two of baby shampoo ( no tears formula) and it would clear up in no time.
I have had eczema on my eyelids 2 or 3 times. I've tried various natural remedies but the only thing that's got rid of it is 0.5% hydrocortizone. Using it for about a week has cleared my eczema up. As littlemissnobody says can only get it on prescription - doesn't make sense when you can buy 1% over the counter.
Hmm, sounds like what my DS often gets too, I always thought it was eczma too but now you've got me wondering. My ds gets it most when he has a cough or cold though so might be linked, and he gets asthma too.
Could it be an allergic reaction to something? Are they itchy?
