Cracked dry itchy eyelids

My husbands eyelids are itchy cracked and even sometimes bleed. He takes an antihistimine daily and proper vitamins. He puts neosporin on them every morning. What else besides warm compresses, he does work everyday, can we do??

He probably has a classic neomycin allergic skin reaction.  I've seen it dozens and dozens of times - it is the worst possible thing to put on eyelids.  Stop the neosporin, see an ophthalmologist and he will probably be put him on a special ophthalmic steroid ointment for a week or two and things will improve.  That's it.
