... allergic to animal fur and i have pets so originally that's what i thought it was, but its rather peculiar, so i guessed it was something more.

... for years, I have started using baby oil to take my make up off, I use baby shampoo to wash my face and eyes after. It helped for a bit, but I still can't wear eye shadow, I take my mascara off as soon as I get home and I'm not going anywhere else. I still have some itch, and redness. My lips do the same thing. ... (21 replies)

... I had the same problem with my right eye. It got so bad I finally went to an allergist. She tested me for chemical allergies, can't remember the name of the test. I was allergic to quaternium 15 which is a preservative used in many Makeup products and lotions and shampoos. I was told to use baby shampoo to wash my eyes as it was supposed to be gentle. Turns out the baby... (21 replies)
... ht it was a bug bite but said it was probably eczema as he took a closer look. Treated it with steroids and antibiotic and topical cortisone creme. Only slightly swollen a week later and still a little red. I am hoping I don't have a reoccurrence, but listening to what everyone else is saying, I'm guessing I will. ... (21 replies)
... for the last 6 years, recently it became slightly worse. In my case, it is only my right eyebrow that is swollen, it never gets itchy or red or anything, but it just won't dont go away! ... (21 replies)
... I have been dealing with this for about 3 years now. The exact same thing. It's my right eye. I've always thought it was a combination of elements / things that triggered it but have never really been able to prevent it from happening. I've keep a log of each time that it happened... travel / change of atmosphere, allergies, didn't wash my make up before bed, cried, waxed my... (21 replies)

... ks like there's a little pocket filled with fluid hanging all the way to the upper eyelashes. It seems the spot gets more and more defined so even when it's not red and itchy, you can still tell that there's something not quite normal over there. ... (21 replies)
... days its disgusting and hurts. I have been getting them im my left eye for years. usually i get one to two every 6 months. When i go to the doctor he tells me its a steye and gives me anibiotics, like amoxicillion. It works,.... ... (21 replies)
... When I get this thing on my eyelid, I do put a very thin layer of cortisone ointment on the red spot, do it for maybe two days and stop when the itchiness goes away. I didn't realize it could result in thinning of the skin on the eyelid.... ... (21 replies)
... It sounds like you are not wearing eye shadow, but if you do, and use anything that has red or pink in the color, you can be allergic to it. I used some with pink in it and the eyelid did the same thing as yours, so don't use pink in eyeshadows. ... (21 replies)
... Sounds to me like you have an infection, a stye or chalazion. If a stye or chalazion keeps coming back it can be surgically removed. Hopefully there's a responsible eye doctor somewhere on Staten Island - don't go back to that nitwit, whatever you do! Good luck . . . I hope you get it all taken care of before the holidays!!

... becomes scaley and dry. The whole thing happens ONLY on the left eyelid, never on the right one. I saw an ophtalmologist a year ago, he said I was allergic to eye cream, should use Cetaphil instead, put cortisone ointment and prescribed Patanol drops. ... (21 replies)
... I couldn't use the cortisone cream because i was advised against it, for using topical retinoids i would damage the the skin. Not a big deal since i doubt it'd do anything when i was told by a dermatologist that i might need a frontal sinus surgery and a CAT scan (21 replies)

... Sorry to hear that. Yes, i've seen some doctors. One said it was a temporary allergy and i should leave it alone, because at the time it was really hard to notice it and it didn't botter me at all. The others all said similar things except one prescribed me an antihistamine drug and a steroid injection for general inflammation, that did absolutely nothing because it wasn't,... (21 replies)
