You might want to go to the pharmacy and pick up some burn gel there.  I worked in the restaurant industry for years and was always getting burned.  Only thing that seemed to help.  Just be careful as to not get it in your eyes.  Or maybe some aloe vera for sunburns.  I think they may make that for children too so maybe it won't burn if it gets into your eyes.

have a great day!

Hi PJ.  Try these things to see if they will help:

1.  Sunscreen directly on your eyelids during the day
2.  Aquaphor or a good night cream at night
3.  Wear a hat, if need be
4.  Make sure to drink plenty of water (as it could be a sign of dehydration)
5.  Try steam from a cup of coffee or tea

How about some cuke slices & a rest period........Also wet tea bags works on weld flashes, I bet the tannic acid helps that too.

I have this issue too. It's not really a burn but a rash from the tx. I use a papaya ointment on it and it works well.

so... did the cucumber very soothing but no long term help, using aloe and baby oil now under and around my eyes and on the eyelids.. its helping a little... the skin is actually peeling and flaking only way to describe this is like a chemical burn... if this doesnt get better in the next day or so im talking to the dr. about a dose reduction... cant stand this much more

Hello, I had very dry irritated eyes and had to use a soothing eye drop.  Sounds like everyone has given you good information.  I think the aloe would help though everyone is different.  Have you tried a hydro cortisone cream?  Just to calm it down, not to use all the time
I know what you mean, when I could no longer wear contacts I had no glasses.  Good luck to you

yes my eyes themselves are dry and irritated and sensitive to light but a few days with the contacts out helps that, its the skin around the eyes that just seems to be getting worse and worse ... i just tried the hydro cream this a.m. too to stop the itching it helped ...
