For the past 2 years my eye lids will peel. They will be fine and then they are all red and peel. Sometimes it is so bad that I look like I have "sleep" on my eyelids and it's the skin peeling. I have been to 2 eye doctors and 2 dermatologists. I keep getting different ointments Propotic (burned my eyes), told to use Cetaphil products, given nystatin and triamcinolone ointment and desonide....Nothing works....and I also have a red blotch on the side of my temple that comes and goes, peels and gets real red sometimes....Now I am being told I may have a wheat allergy.
I am getting married in a few months and I feel like I look like hell.
I have had a similar thing on my eyelids. The doctor prescribed a Betnesol cream. Within a day the swelling, redness and flaking was much better, within three days it was gone. If I stop using the cream the condition reoccurs, but it is clear as long as I use it. A friend of my suggested the cause of my symptoms was eczema (???). Good luck with whatever you've got. And congrats on the wedding!
