An allergic reaction or a skin disorder.

I read that it might be exzema (eczema).  The only way to find out for sure what it is is to see a dermatologist.  I think I'm going to make an appointment myself.  I have the same problem.  My eyelids itch and nothing seems to help.  I just started using a 1% hydrocortizone 2 times a day.  Maybe that will help you.
