Itchy red swollen rash above eye

I have a rash on my eyelid above my right eye and on my eyebrow. It is red, swollen itchy and sometimes flaky like dry skin. I had mistaken it for dry skin but I have applied moisturizing lotion and Elidel and it has not gone away.  I have had it for two weeks now.  I also though it could be an allergic reaction. I got a kitten about 4 months ago, but up to two weeks ago have not shown any signs of allergies. The kitten is the only thing I can think of that is different from normal. Another suggestion was stress. I am a full time college student taking some extremely hard courses, so I am under a lot of stress, but could this show with a rash?  If it was something like stress, which can't be relieved by lotion =), what could I do to get rid of the rash? I would appreciate any advise! This thing is really driving me crazy. =)  Thanks!
