Irritated, red, itchy eyelid

Hello -

I've been having repeated episodes where my eye lid would get tingly, red, irriated and then itchy. Usually lasts for 3 days.

It's not a stye (where it looks like a mini pimple), just red and sore on half of the length of the lid. This has been happening too often lately and I was wondering could be causing this. It's happened on both eyes (not at the same time).

Thanks for any input.

Re: Irritated, red, itchy eyelid

Hm, im sorta having the same thing here where half my lower eyelid is sorta swollen and red, hurts a bit. What ive read it could be conjunctivitis or something like that. Anyway, I got my infection thanks to using bad makeup, especially my eyelash curler very close to my inner lower eyelid membrane. Perhaps your using infected eye makeup or even your glasses. I began using waterproof mascara too so that cold also be. Anyway, just a thought and hope someone could help out here in more depth.

Re: Irritated, red, itchy eyelid

Thanks glowramia -

I don't think it's due to my make-up, it's relativey new.

This has been happening to me often latley. Right now it's itchy and red and swollen. No pus, tears or bumbs. And it lasts for 3 days. It seems to always been the same eye and it occurs every month or every few weeks. I need to keep track better but I think it's around the time of ovulation for me. Could it be hormonal?

Thanks for the post by the way.
