Two years ago I had plastic surgery. During the peeling process, my skin was baddly burned and scarred. However, what has been bothering me, is the redness and swelling of the eyelids on a constant basis. My lids are always really read. I have used varied over the counter creams, but nothing seems to help. I went to an eye doctor this week and she prescribed an ointment steroid based and antibiotic. Was my eyelids burned during the surgery, and is there anything I can do to get rid of the redness.
You will need to continue to see your ophthalmologist to see what works best for your chronic skin redness. Your descriptions are vague so I don't know if you might have lid margin disease with blepharitis or meibomitis and possibly even acne rosacea. Again, your ophthalmologist should be your best help for problems like that. If everthing begins to look better and you just have skin redness issues - you might be able to work with the aesthetician/beauty consultant at the plastic surgeon's office to try some medical grade skin producst to help with your cosmetic issues.
Finally, I have no idea if the surgery is related to your problems or not. I cannot give you any useful opinion because I don't know your case.
