    I am 15 years old and i have eczema. Recently my eyelid has dropped. i think it because of my scratching .. how do i get it back to the way it was before? ....is there anything i can do about it ?

    • ANSWER:
      Please don't buy expensive water or place ads on sites.
      See your doctor or ask a pharmacist for help. They will advise on a safe ointment to use on your eyelid, something to stop it itching.
      Itching also intensifies when you are under stress. Learn how to manage your stress and in consequence, keep your eczema under control.
      Emollients are moisturisers which soothe, smooth and add water to (hydrate) the skin. They are the most common treatment and should be used every day even if you do not have eczema symptoms. Examples include aqueous cream and E45 cream. You can apply emollients directly to your skin as lotions, creams or ointments. Make sure what ever you get is safe to use on your eyes.

    please help me! i have eczema on my left eyelid. its red dry and flakey. ive had it for almost half a year now. im in 7th grade and almost every week there is an idiot at my school who thinks it is funny to ask "did you get punched in the eye" or "do you know how to put eyeshadow on correctly" or "whats up with your eyelid" please help! can you suggest products?

    • ANSWER:
      Ask your mom to buy you an Aloe Vera plant which you can grow. Snip out a leaf and refrigerate it for a few hours then apply the Aloe Vera gel from inside the leaf on your eyelid rash. You can also buy face creams that have vitamin E as an alternative to moisturize your skin. Use the Aloe Vera or moisturizer regularly on your face and you should see an improvement over the next few days. Avoid using concealer or any makeup because they might only worsen your eyelid rash.

  9. QUESTION:
    eczema on my eyelid? 10 points! please answer.?
    my eyelid is super itchy and peeling really badly. iv tried putting eczema cream on it, but i had an allergic reaction ( because it was on my eyelid ) causing it to be puffy and super red. i have a bad habit of rubbing my eyes too, and that has left it red and just making the itching worse. i was wondering 3 things:
    1.) how long till its gone if i stop rubbing my eye?
    2.) will my eye become wrinkly or under my eye become saggy or what?
    3.) how do i not itch it?

    • ANSWER:

  10. QUESTION:
    is olay a good moisturizer to use if i have eczema on my eyelid?
    i use olay complete all day UV moisturizer doesnt get worse but not exactly better either

    • ANSWER:
      I like the St' Ives 100% natural cream or Eucerin (eucerin is pretty expensive). Whatever you use just make sure it doesn't contain any fragrance. I get it pretty bad on my eyelids too. sometimes rubbing a little itch cream on your eyelids before the lotion helps clear it up a little faster.
      I've also been taking apple cider vinegar to help control my eczema which has been helping. Here is an article that talks about using vinegar to treat eczema.

  11. QUESTION:
    How can I get rid of eczema around my eye area?
    For the past few days, I have noticed dry skin around my eye. The condition has become worse overtime. It now reveals a red patch. I have tryed Vaseline, but there haven't been any changes.
    The doctor has full appointments apparently. So I would like to know a natural remedie for my eye? Would it be possible for my eczema underneath my eyelid to clear up by tomorrow?
    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      You need to see the doc and get a prescription and you cant get rid of eczema, but you can control it so its not visible. You need some cream and maybe with a weak steroid in it but get your doc to prescribe one.

  12. QUESTION:
    Are there any natural cures for eczema on eyelids?
    I've tried numerous things to get rid of the eczema around my eyes. Nothing I've tried has worked. It keeps coming back. I haven't been able to wear make-up for several months. It's so painful, itchy, and just down right miserable. Does anyone have a good solution to get rid of this awful stuff for good?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi, eczema on eyelids can be one of the worst types of eczema to deal with.

      Because the skin on the eyelids is so thin and delicate, you need to be careful what you put on it. A lot of medicated eczema treatments contain steroids and other chemicals, and the last thing you will want is to have them seeping into your eyes.

      Try using a cream which has natural ingredients. A really good one is Aloe Vera, as it has a lot of skin healing properties. The key is to keep the eyes well moisturized and not to let the skin get dry. Dry skin makes eczema a lot worse.

      Try your best not to rub them or scratch them either, as this makes the situation worse as well.

      Stress is something that people don't think about, but it is a known cause for making eczema worse, so try to learn to relax a bit more.

      Hope things get better for you and the eczema on eyelids gets better.

    Eyelid is swollen, may have something to do with eczema. Help!?!?
    I have suffered from eczema for many years so it wasn't much of a surprise when my skin started getting itchy and red earlier this week. It started getting better as I treated it, but this morning I woke up and suddenly my skin was inflamed and itchy and my left eye was swollen almost shut!

  16. QUESTION:
    What can I use to moisturize eczema on or close to my eyelids?
    I have eczema on my body but have never had it on my face. I recently got it on the folds of my eyelids so it gets friction constantly from blinking. I started moisturizing it with Kukui oil at night and aveeno face lotion during the day, but it gets in my eyes when i exercise (i don't sweat that much) or when i rub my eyes ever so carefully. I was thinking of using Vaseline. it seems gentle enough.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi, it can be a bit tricky treating eyelid eczema because of the sensitivity of the area. Many eczema treatments which are used to treat eczema on other parts of the body are often a bit risky to use around the eyes.

      A good treatment is to use Aloe Vera Cream. This can be very soothing and helps to take down the inflammation of the skin.

      A cream which contains Vitamin E can also be effective.

      Hard as it may be try not to rub the area as this will make the situation much worse.

      Hope that was helpful, if you want more information about how to treat eyelid eczema, you can find details at the resource underneath. Take care.

  17. QUESTION:
    What special treatments are there for eczema?

I tried Elidel, anti-aging creams, and right now I am using TriCeram.

  18. QUESTION:
    Anyone know anything about eczema on eyelids?
    I have been told that the itching on my eyelids is eczema but the cream given me by the doctor (a steroid) isn't helping at all. I wasn't too keen on using a steroid on my eyes anyway but did try. I'm in u.k. by the way.

    Do any of you know of anything more gentle, preferably available over the counter rather than prescription only medication? I'd be interested to try anything considered alternative/complementary if you could recommend but I cannot afford to visit a natural therapist.

    • ANSWER:
      I have eczema on my face and eyelids as well. Usually 1% hydrocortisone work for my eyelids if I get deperate but I hear your concern. I try not to use it often because of the side effects. What does also work for me is pure Vaseline. It takes a couple of days to kick in but it takes the itching away and as long as I keep it moist it tends to stay at bay. Give it a try, it's cheap and lasts a long time. Make sure it's Vaseline and not some generic petroleum jelly. They generic petroleum jelly didn't seem to do the same job, don't know why!

    I'm a virgin, 15 years old never had any sexual contact.

    • ANSWER:
      When I was your age I had eczema. My family doctor took care of it. You can have it on more than one place on your body and I think you do. Try to use soaps that don't have deodorant in the problem areas. Something mild like Ivory. Probably, won't make it go away but it won't make it worse
      oh, don't use soap around your eyes.

  21. QUESTION:
    I have really really bad dry skin on my eyelid ... what can I do to get rid of it ?

It started about a week ago and sometimes it itches me. This morning it feels more dry and flaky than before. What could it be? What can I put on it to heal it?

    • ANSWER:
      Sometimes I get itchy patches on my eyelids aswell. Very strange feeling! Use a little hydrocortisone cream to clear it up. Or aloe vera is really good for mild cases of dermatitis.

  23. QUESTION:
    I have eczema on my eyelids. Any suggestions what I can use to calm it down?

  24. QUESTION:
    Is there a way to avoid itching while you have eczema?
    I'm 14 years old and I have eczema, which covers my entire eyelids. Sometimes I can't help scratching, even if I don't want to. Is there a special medication or treatment for that?
    I've had eczema for years. I have tried several medications, but I found they were either uneffective or too harmful.

    • ANSWER:
      Have you tried a hydrocortizone cream? They sell it walmart and other department stores. It's a 1% Hydrocortisone cream that comes under different names, but always says "anti-itch." When I get breakouts of minor bumps on my arms (I don't know why), that's what I use. The name on the one I have now is 'Cortaid.' I always get the Maximum Strength ones with Aloe Vera.

      Aveeno has a good anti-itch lotion, but I wouldn't reccomend that for your eye-lids. It's too...what's the word...minty?

      I just found a good site:
      http://quickcare.org/skin/rashes.html

      Then you probably have sensitive skin along with the eczema. The hydrocortisone stuff should work.

      I've got sensitive skin real bad and that works wonders.

      I got red, itchy bumps on my chest, wrists, forearms, and the other side of the elbow, i dunno what its called, and the backs of my hands. bumps were showing up like crazy and it startedt to itch real, real bad.
      I used the Aveeno and it stopped the itching. well, for a little bit. But the hydrocortisone stopped the itching and took away the bumps, as long as I kept using it. When I stopped, it came back like a day later, but it works. It's great. It's not expensive. But for extra effect, find soemthing with Vitamin A and E, also.

  25. QUESTION:
    what is the best treatment for eczema on and around the eyelids, besides hydrocortisone cream?
    It goes away with hydrocortisone cream but i don't want to keep using that since it is a type of topical steroid and your body can become dependent or immune to it.

    • ANSWER:
      Eucerin is a lotion you should try, my son has it bad around hislips this medicine takes it all out of his face. I think it is being overlooked. Try it I guarantee it works.

  26. QUESTION:
    How do I get rid of eczema on my eyelids fast?

    also im not a parent, im almost 15 years old male.

    • ANSWER:
      well i had a similar situation, but it was psoriasis on my eyelids instead of eczema - but they are very similar. i just asked my doctor about it and he was able to prescribe a prescription cream that was safe to use on/around the eyes - it really cleared up everything that was there in a matter of days!

  30. QUESTION:
    Droopy eyelids? from Eczema?
    I went to the doctor last week to ask about my itchy and flaky lips, and he told me it was eczema. I have had previous problems with eczema in the past, but rather than flaky skin, it was large red patches on my body that itched. This time around, it is on my face. Yesterday, I woke up with the skin above my eyes slightly drooping over my eyelid, so my eyelid appeared smaller. I am asian, and it isn't new to me that sometimes I wake up with uneven eyelids, however this felt slightly different. Same for today, my eyelids seem to droop over abit more, and I am scared that soon, I will lose my double eyelid.
    My eyelid now looks abit wrinkly/flaky and occasionally itches.
    I am not sure whether the eczema cream my doctor prescribed me for my lips will work for the eczema on other parts of my face.
    (I was given Elocom cream to use for 3 days, then switch to Elidel and use until eczema clears.)

    What else can i do to save my eyelid from drooping!?

    • ANSWER:
      salcura dermaspray gentle , a product from Britain will help you. Lot's of reviews from people stating they have dramatic results with it. Read reviews online.
      Salcura is only available from Britain, at various websites such as expresschemist:co:uk
      or other sites. It's all natural, over the counter, not greasy sticky or messy. Stops the eczema itch in seconds and heals the skin rapidly. Look for any reviews from people with the eyelid drooping problem but I'd highly recommend this product. It worked dramatic results for our child who has eczema.

  31. QUESTION:
    Eczema on eyelids, does anyone have any answers?
    This is a question for my Mum, she doesn't have eczema anywhere else. Does anyone know the cause and how to prevent it and make it better?

  35. QUESTION:
    Eczema problem - pigmentation in and around eyes?
    I have had really bad eczema for the past 4 years (I am 18 now). I have quite dark skin now because of the pigmentation and have noticed that the eczema on my eyelids and around my eyes is quite bad.

    My eye colour used to be quite light and hazel when i was about 13 and since my eczema has got worse, the colour has got darker. Is this because of the pigmentation change? And will it go back to its normal colour?

    • ANSWER:
      I don't think so. You should treat the excema with something given to you by a dermatologist. Try Hylatopic foam, it's safe to use (it won't age your skin), it won't work 100% but it will help. Your dermatologist can write you a prescription for it.

  37. QUESTION:
    i have eczema on my eyelids what is the best treatment?
    i had creams from the Dr's, iv bought stuff but it wont go! help i look like a lizard.

    • ANSWER:
      See your doctor or ask a pharmacist for help. They will advise on a safe ointment to use on your eyelid, something to stop it itching.
      Itching also intensifies when you are under stress. Learn how to manage your stress and in consequence, keep your eczema under control.
      Emollients are moisturisers which soothe, smooth and add water to (hydrate) the skin. They are the most common treatment and should be used every day even if you do not have eczema symptoms. Examples include aqueous cream and E45 cream. You can apply emollients directly to your skin as lotions, creams or ointments. Make sure what ever you get is safe to use on your eyes.

  38. QUESTION:
    What kinds of food can trigger eczema?
    i have eczema and it keeps flaring up on my lower eyelids and on the skin under my eyes. every morning i eat cheerios with chocolate milk (which i recently changed to soymilk because i read that dairy can cause eczema flare ups), and i recently read that gluten can also cause flare ups. and i read that cheerios contain gluten. so could eating cheerios every day be causing my flare ups?

  39. QUESTION:
    How do you improve skin affected by eczema?
    My eyelids look dry and pinkish because I am affected by a gene-inherited disease called eczema. What should I do?

    • ANSWER:
      You may have a genetic or in-born susceptability to eczema but it does not mean it cannot be cured.

      I suffered from eczema last year and look at what it did to my face.

      http://www.eczemacure.info/article/articleview/49/1/7

      My son is suffering from eczema in his toes right now.

      The best way to fight eczema is to clean or strengthen your body's cleaning mechanisms: Colon Cleanse, Kidney Cleanse, Liver Cleanse.

      Also stop taking foods and drinks that are toxic to humans: junk food, junk drinks, convenience foods.

      Eat and drink fresh, clean vegetables and fruits.

  40. QUESTION:
    Eczema help...am I choosing the right products for me?
    I've been doing a bit of research, and I've found a few topical ointments that sound like they might work well for me.

    Several sites said to use products with immunomodulators for eyelid eczema, and I found something called Elidel, which is safe to use on your face and has no steroids.

    For my neck and arms, I currently use Vaseline, petroleum jelly, but I wanted to find a medicated cream to really solve my problem. I discovered Proecza, and I also found a site called champori.com with (supposedly effective, but expensive) eczema treatment creams.

    Has anyone used these? Do they really work?

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      There is no way of knowing what works for your until you try it. With eczema what works for one doesn't necessarlly work for another.

      Elidel while non-steroidal is an immunosuppressive drug and the side-effects can be far far worse than eczema itself. Steer clear of that one.

      Cheers,
      Fina
