Hello,
For such symptoms blepharitis needs to be ruled out. Blepharitis is an ocular disease characterized by inflammation of the eyelid margins. Generally the causes are seborrheic dermatitis (similar to dandruff) and infection by Staphylococcus bacteria, but sometimes allergies like allergic responses to dust mite feces and other allergens can also cause it.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
