Re: Swollen Itchy Eyelids?
I went to the doctor about 2 weeks ago and he told me it was conjuctivitus, saying that it's VERY common this time of year. He gave me eye drops and told me that hot compresses would be just as useful as the eyedrops he prescribed.
After that it started to turn into what I associate with Pink Eye and the actual eyes were very irritated. That subsided after a week and the eyelids cleared up but just this week the dry eyelids have come back in a mild form. I will go back to the doctor again soon.
Also try polysporin, but don't but cortizone on your face. The polysporin might help if you got those cuts from it being so dry. Vaseline is good but very oily and visible. It's so oily that it can find its way in your eye. That might've been how I got the pink eye aspect.
