Anyone suffer from eyelid eczema
11

SusieKin · 20/06/2022 10:04

Been suffering from eyelid eczema for about 5yrs. Really struggling to find skincare that doesn’t cause this to flair up. At the moment my eyes are so bad I look like I have aged 20 yrs!!

Anyone recommend a skincare range that may be suitable?

No I haven't but my DSis did for years.

Can't help with the skincare but just wanted to say that hers stopped as soon as she stopped eating Dairy. She's reintroduced it gradually and the eczema didn't come back.

It might be worth asking for a referral to the Allergy Clinic to see if you have an allergy causing this Flowers

I know someone who had this and used vaseline on it! Cleared it right up. However, I'd recommend requesting a referral to dermatology from your GP as it's been so long

My dd cut out wheat and then gradually brought it back in and the same happened

Yes I did. Was due to using certain mascaras and cleansers. I found what worked for me and have been fine.

My DD had similar and as was not using make up was more problematic finding a cause. She had an appointment with her allergy consultant and he prescribed Protopic ointment. It's really safe to use on the face - doesn't thin the skin like traditional steroid creams. Worked brilliantly. So I would say get to your GP and ask them to prescribe it.

Hi, yes I have been prescribed protopic and this seems to have cleared it up. For the first time in years my eye looks almost normal! Fingers crossed it doesn’t flare up again.

My DH has this, apparently a common reaction to testosterone replacement. He applies a thin layer of sudocream every night when it appears and it then clears after a few days.

I opened this thread to recommend that you get protopic from the gp! Glad that it has worked. Did they warn you to be extra careful with sun protection while using it?
