Dry eyelids

Hi, For 2  years I have had dry skin on my eyelids. The eyes get dry, sting a little an then get flaky skin or sometimes the skin will crack. Along with this my ears ooze  a yellow substance from inside the ridge at the top of my ears, it then gets very dry around the ear. After the first year I started to get lesions/dry skin on my elbows and belly button.
Last summer I spent in spain and was given Centrizine for it by a chemist, after a week the symptoms were suppressed but would return slightly if I stopped taking it. I also believe the sun and sea helped alot.I have returned to london and the symptoms are back except for the lesions as of yet. I have been taking the Centrizine but it is not effective anymore. Can anyone help with this?

Hello Brethser,

Just finished reading your comments. It sounds to me like perhaps you
could benefit from a visit to a dermatologist. Where I live, you need a
referral from your doctor for a dermatologist. Have you been to see your
family doctor regarding this issue ?  Good luck to you.  Eve

Agree with evewisewoman.  I myself have eczema, but I can't say if your diagnosis will be the same.  There are other conditions that can cause similar symptoms.  Treatment could vary a great deal, depending on the diagnosis.  After you see the doctor and get a diagnosis, post back, and you might be able to get some suggestions from peers who have the same condition that you do.

Several diseases have same sort of symptoms. Your symptoms seems to be alike eczema but still it would be great if you consult with a doctor so that you will get the right treatment at right time without any side effect.
