It's most likely an allergy, probably to something that is common in SC that wasn't where you used to live. There are several OTC allergy eyedrops that you could try. You could also try an OTC antihistimine like claritin or zyrtec.

I have been dealing with red, swollen, itchy, flaky, eyelids for a couple months now. Went to dermatol., who of course prescribed hydrocortisone ointment. Got some relief, but not much. Then changed all make-up and brushes. Cleared up for a couple days, then came back raging. It was depressing. Then I prayed, and asked God to show me what it is..you know, it's like trying to find a needle in a haystack! A day or two later, I was telling a friend about my eye problem (it was obvious, at least to me). She said, "honey, you are eating something you shouldn't be...are you eating strawberries?" YES...I make fresh smoothies, eat them fresh, on and on. They're in season in January (Florida strawberries), then later from California. I have since cut out strawberries, and am ecstatic to report that it is disappearing! Never had a problem with strawberries before! Incidentally, my mother had the same eye problem, only 10 times worse. She cut out all berries just to be sure, and she is clearing up as well. Whatever you do...don't keep using cortisone ointments. You will permanently damage that tender skin around your eyes! Good luck and God Bless!

I was also suffering from an Itchy eyelid (Right Eye Only). I started taking Claratin and Naphcon A Eye Drops and I have see drastic improvment in less than one week.
