: I too have one red itchy eye lid that doesn't
seem to appear at any particular time. i am on
constant antihistamines so it doesn't seem to be
related to allergies. I also develop rash patches
on my neck that irritate me even more. when i rub
the rash on my eye it burns even more. It seems
to be dry skin but when I put lotion on it it
flares up even worse and burns like a mad dog. I
have just read that vaseline may help but I am
still puzzeled by this irritating predicament. I
pray that we find a solution to this problem.
: : : HAS ANYONE EVER HAVE JUST ONE EYE LID GET
RED, ITCHY AND CAUSE A RED SCAR WITH WHITE PLAQUEY
SCALES DURING EITHER THE DAY OR NIGHT. I DIDN'T
KNOW WHAT IT WAS AND HAD IT ON AND OFF FOR A
MONTH. IT COULD NOT BE THE SHAMPOOS I USE I TRIED
DIFFERENT ONES AND CHANGED SKIN CARE PRODUCTS AND
MAKE UP AND WHY JUST ONE EYE. I USED VITAMIN E TO
TRY AND CLEAR IT UP AND STAYED AWAY FROM POWDER OR
CREME EYESHADOWS. I ALSO GOT KIND OF ITCHY ALL
OVER M BODY AND REALLY FATIGUED. I USE A COMPUTER
ALOT AND WEBTV. IS IT EYE STRAIN ??? ON ONE EYE?
OR DERMATITIS OR SOMETHING MORE SERIOUS, LUPUS,
LYME, ETC. I AM FINE OTHERWISE, JUST FEVERISH
LATELY AND I GET FLUSHED ON AND OFF. I AM 41,
MARRIED NO CHILDREN AND WORK IN A DOCTORS OFFICE
AND DO TYPING ON THE SIDE FOR ONE DOCTOR. I ALSO
SELL MAGNETS...FOR THERAPUETIC USE. OTHER THAN
CLEANING AND NOW GARDENING I CAN'T SEE THE PROBLEM
OF THE ITCHY, RED, SCALY, ALMOST RAW AND CRACKED
EYE WHICH SOMETIMES IS HARD TO OPEN AND HARD TO
GET THE LID TO FUNCTION. IT IS BETTER NOW SO FAR.
ANYONE OUT THERE HAVE ANY IDEAS IT WOULD BE
APPRECIATED. I AM GOING FOR BLOOD TESTS TO
DETERMINE ANY UNDERLYING DISEASE OR ALLERGY.

: : The won't tell you what yu are doing or eating
that is causing your problem. It may help, but
you need to find out what you are doing that is
causing the toxic condition that is bringing about
the symptoms you describe.
: : The topical applications may give temporary
relief but they only add to the toxins you need to
I also have one eyelid with a dry scaley rash
on it and am extremely fatigued. This happened
to me years ago, and I was seeing a naturo-
path who told me I had a fatty liver. If you
read about fatty liver on the internet, you
will find that a fever is also a sympton, but
I don't have one. I was told to fast on juice,
(carrots and beetgreens are best for the liver)
and it worked, and I felt great afterward!
I again developed this about a week ago.
If you read about fatty liver you will find that
some of the common causes for it are, excessive
alcohol consumption, weight gain, poor diet,
lack of protein. If you find that this sounds
like what you have, I'm curious to know.
