:I too, experience red, itchy eye lids. However, when my rash is extreme, it goes across the bridge of my nose (like that of a pair of glasses),
and at other times, it is found around the edge of my lips
and the creases of my mouth. I am going to monitor
the amount of alcohol and stress in my life to see
if that helps. I have been introduced to antihistamines
but that isn't the answer. Liver info., here I come.
: : 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.
: : : : THANKS
: : : 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.
