itchy, bumps on eyelid

I got a few itchy, non color, bumps on my inner eyelid and then a few weeks later, I noticed a few bumps that itched and then when I itched them, a few more came up on the inner slope of my nose.  Sometimes they itch and the bumps get larger.  The itch comes and goes.   makeup does not help.  I wash my face and my pillowcase religiously.  I do wear contacts.

Would using topical hydrocortisone on my face be ok?  What could I use on my eyelid?

You know your really need a diagnosis and my first suggestion is to see an eye MD.

Second hydrocortisone on the face is okay for a short period of time (< 2 wks). On your eyelid you should not use cortisone products unless first advised to do so by an Eye MD.
