Burned eyelid

I burned my eyelid almost a year ago with a grill. I did not go immediately to the hospital because I thought it was minor.  Since then I have seen several doctors including two dermatologists and no one can make my eyelid normal again.  It is red, tight, dry, itchy and the skin constantly flakes off.  According to my husband, when I sleep my eye opens.  Is there anything out there that can help with this often annoying and always embarrasing problem.

See a Eye MD ophthalmologist, ideally one that specializes in cornea/external disease. Also use the search and archives to read about "blepharitis" and "dry eyes".
