Eye rash
For the past few months, I have noticed have had a discharge from my left eye upon waking up in the morning.  This past week, I developed a sore spot on the skin on the outer corner of my left eye, that itches and burns.  I am taking Benadryl, by the way.  Yesterday when I woke up, my upper eyelid was red and swollen and scaly and there was swelling over to the inner corner of my eye.  I had cataract surgery about a year and a half ago and have noticed that I have dry eye worse than before the surgery.  I use Genteel eye drops as well as over the counter ointment before I go to sleep.  My ophthalmologist is over two hours away so I haven't been able to see him yet.  Is there any over the counter meds I could use until I see him?  I am using the same makeup and cannot figure out what is causing this.  I appreciate any help or advice.

Hi Libby,
You may use warm compresses and preservative free tears.
Sincerely,
