i am a 26 year old female, in good health but have a very stubborn eye area irritation for approx 10mths and i have no idea what caused it or how to make it better. they seem to flare up often, at different times and different areas of my eyes, epecially after i rub them.
it began in the outer corner of my eye on my left side, showing a small 4mm pink dry rash not overly noticible but annoying itchy sting.
Then to my right eyelid, creating same thing but along the crease of my eyelid, starts icthy then raw , drys up, flakes itches and starts again.
now it has got under both my eyes, in the fine lines under my bottom eyelash, which is driving me crazy, really raw red lines, that flare up, go raw,sting, dry and then flake.
they are not infected.i have no allergies that i am aware of, use no products eg moisteriser or cleanser around them now for months. have tried vit a cream, bio oil, bepanthem a healing cream with panthenol 50mg/g and benzalkonium 500mcg/g, lemmis fatty cream hydrocort 1%, derm aid 0.5% hydro cort, natural oil based exzema (eczema) products around them, one with chamomile, another with violet leaves none with effect
i need some serioius help and advise. thank you so much
You may have blepharitis and areas of 'scalded skin' due to Staphlococcus aureous/epidermidis exotoxin production. Dry eyes often accompanies blepharitis.
See an Eye MD ophthalmologist-physician soon. Tell thim of your problem. Ask the staff of the Eye MD to have the MD look at your eyes before they put the drops in. Ask them to do a schirmer tear tests.
