It starts with a tiny red bump under my skin, in the crease if my eyelid, and is very itchy. It seems to spread, on my eyelid.
Then, each morning I wake up, my eyes are swollen. The itchiness continues for about 3 days, then the tiny bumps dry up and i'm fine. This has happened 3 times in a month. I've ruled out, makeup or my skin products. Can you please help?
well, if the bumps are on the BACKSIDE of your eyelid, then this sounds like ALLERGIC CONJUNCTIVITIS. you need to be on topical steroids like alrex or antihistamines like optivar or patanol.
if the bumps are on the OUTSIDE of your eyelids, then this is some skin/hypersensitivity reaction...you may need to see a dermatologist. this could even be virla...like herpes simplex. especially since you say the bumps "dry up"...like at some point they are oozing liquid? that certainly would not be allergy, and would lead me towards a diagnosis of some recurrent viral condition like simplex
