Common Questions and Answers about Eczema eyelids pictures

eczema

I have had these red spots on both of my eyelids for at least six months now. They never itch or hurt, never any puss or leaking and they never get any bigger, they just seem to dry over and peel about once every couple of days but never go away. They seem to fade once in a while but never completely go away. I read that it could be a fungal infection from to much yeast so I stopped eating bread of any kind for a week and a half but no change.
I, as well, have googled "red, swollen itchy eyelids" because I am suffering the same problem. But my eyelids are swollen around my eyebrow area... NOT near my lashes. It's like the fatty part over your brow bone. When I wake up it's sometimes so swollen I can't fully see. I also have a small rash on the side of my face, below my temple, about the size of a dime. Could it be eczema? The inflamation reduces during the day but by morning I wake up with the puffy tightness again.
It does seem to help a little inside the eye (very little). I got some Benedryl cream (pharmacist recommendation) and put lightly on my eyelids but it burned so badly when I put it on due to the eyelid being raw, that I quickly took it back off. I then tried corticosteroid cream (second pharmacist recommendation) lightly.
I started looking for solutions online, came across this board and started following the advice I found - wash my eyelids with SteriLid by TheraTears and put Aquaphor ointment. It seemed to help at first, I was thrilled for a week, and then again, after five days of my therapy, last Saturday I woke up with the left eyelid swollen, the part right above the crease reddish and itchy, same on Sunday, and it's been like this until today, itchy, reddish and scaley.
Oddly, there was no tingling or pain before the cut/sore appeared, unless I didn't notice, and when I look at pictures on the Internet of herpes it doesn't really look like that. It does tingle and beat now, but only after put Herpecin on, which burns the hell out of this cut/sore. Note however, the fact that it is drying up and crusting up makes me think its herpes (either oral or genital). The cut/sore is v. small but painful.
S it has recently moved to my eyelids in the past few months. PLEASE take a look at the pictures and give me a clue! It's very bothersome. And I'm going to the dermatologist next week, I just dont want another diagnosis of "we don't know what it is". :( At it's worst: http://www.geocities.com/drkangel200/IMG_3311.JPG Close up of a flare: http://www.geocities.com/drkangel200/IMG_3428.JPG This morning before lotion: http://www.geocities.com/drkangel200/IMG_3579.JPG My eye: http://www.
Hi, This could be acne, folliculitis, pimples, dermatitis , eczema or allergic skin reaction to some unknown substance, genital warts, etc. Are you allergic to any specific substances? Have you taken any medications for the lesions? You should keep the areas clean, wear lose comfortable clothes to avoid sweating, use a powder to keep the areas dry , use calamine lotion at the sites. Oral antihistamine medications would help if the lesions are itchy.
After much internet research, my best guess was molluscum contagiosum, though it didn't quite look like all the pictures, but it did look like some. When I saw the doc, I told him that I thought it might be molluscum. He took a look, wasn't quite sure, but said they could be molluscum and that they likely were, but mentioned at one point that they could be warts... He froze off what he could see, and mentioned that he could see umbilications in many of them.
Within the past few weeks I have noticed very small, but growing red rash type objects on the shaft of my penis. After looking at lots of pictures, it seems to look similar to very very mild herpes. But the problem is that I think it is impossible for this to be the cause due to what has happened. First off, I haven't had unprotected with someone other than my girlfriend in the past 5-6 months, and I never experienced the first episode 2-10 after contraction of herpes.
I hate to dx someone over the internet, but it really sounds a whole lot like what I have gone through with lupus. You said all your labs are normal except the ANA, MPV and Monocytes. Did you mean MCV? If so, that means your hematocrit is off. It reflects the size of the red blood cells. Increased values may indicate macrocytic anemia or vit B or folic acid deficiency and decreased values may indicate microcytic anemia possibly caused by iron deficiency.
This is eczema. No cure and no reasonable treatment. It will come and go, sometimes for long periods. It might spread to other area's like your eye lids. Hydro Cortisone is one of the treatments. But long term use causes thinning of the skin. There seems to be an epidemic of this disease affecting adults. Because historically it primarily affected kids. They claim it affects 15% of Americans of which 2% are adults. They need to take a better look at that. If you look at this site and others.
I haven't changed any toileteries or make up in the last 2 months. I am not sure what it could be? I don't think it is eczema, but believe it could be an allergic reaction to something. I can't seem to work out what it could be? Could it be an allergic reaction to something i am using around the eye or a food product? Please help me.
Hey you all... I too still have some of the same problems like the peeling lips, swollen lips for about 2 yrs. After doing some strenuous research on the Internet, it seems to me that everyone is experiencing lip eczema. So here's what I found. "Eczema is a Greek word and means " to boil over". It is where skin is inflamed, red, and sore. The skin cracks easily.
The kind I used is fluocinonide, which I think is generic for Lidex, and I use this when I get my mild eczema breakout on my eyelids. Since I've never had cold sores ever in my life, and now have after kissing and intercourse with the stranger who i had 2 encounters with, is it possible that I contracted the hsv1 virus from him?

I'd itch so much and only in the spots where the CRP is located. My first visit to the derm, they said it was eczema.. tried every eczema cure there was and nothing. Then they told me years later that it was Tinea versi color. I struggled with that for years and used every shampoo, cream, steroid...I tried it all.
it's not necessarily as bad as some of those sites and pictures make it out to be. I've had it for years with nothing more than the bumps and the itching (which can drive you mad); an eighty year old doctor showed me both his palms and told me not to worry about it - he'd had no other problems either. (Although if your bumps are growing aggressively then I guess you need to make decisions).
Hydrocortisone helps and another produt called elidel helps, but don't use that one on your eyelids lol, made that mistake OUCH!!
Bet it was eczema. I have atopic eczema, and it itches, but noting too bad. ( I have a mild case. ) I also get red rashes all over my torso when I take a shower, I wonder what that is.... It can't be Aquagenic b/c the rashes don't really itch.
Anyway, I also read something about the raw food diet helping people with eczema. I know eczema is different than what most of us have but it does have to do with the skin so it may help with what we got too. I dunno though, anyone know anything about that?
I thought about Lichen, but I do not see my vagina changing in that form, like the pictures that I have researched. Please Please help me figure out what other problems there might be. I have been in the same relationship all this time. Also, if you know any remedies for the itching, please send my way. I use All Free & Clear laundry detergent, and wash with warm water as I fell needed throughout the day. I also don't get my period often, I tied my tubes in 2003, so I don't take any BC.
-- I have been told many names for my condition-- Eczema, Folliculitus, Herpes, Scoriscis, etc. Interestingly enough, I had this condition before I even acquired "herpes" which was due to being raped. So, in many ways I have oviously been misdiagnosed. I have spent extreme amounts of money on pills, creams, lotions, and the like.I have also tried over the counter remedies. Some of the different options have included, NADS, Epil Stop, Nair, Electric razors etc.
i googled and came up with morgellons disease - until then i never knew what people with psychological problems were talking about. i looked at the pictures of the sufferers of this disease and i wanted to die. i had an anxiety attack and was admitted to the emergecy room where they made me hold a fluffy ball and describe how it felt. i suffered. one day i read the front page of yahoo, about a guy suffering from a crawling feeling. i read his symptons and they sounded like mine.
What kind of medical emergency you may have when calling a dermatologist? A pimple on your nose? An eczema that can't wait until tomorrow morning?" I guess I felt great at the time and I never had a serious skin problem in my life. Now, when I know what is to have such a bad flare up of rash that you can't open your swollen eyelids, I begin to appreciate the notion of skin condition emergency.
i actuall use clobestol on my eczema that is on my hands and fingers. my hands get so dry at times that they do crack, so i put the clobetasol on it and it starts to heal in no time. so maybe it will work down there. i have some relief......thanks all. please continue to post your comments and updates.
As for you who have posted that you have found your hives seem to flare up more around your periods, I just finished watching a show in tv about a woman who started getting hives on her eyelids, and it eventually worsened to cover her body and she would go into anaphylaxic shock. She and her husband started tracking her outbreaks and found that her severe outbreaks would happen around her period and also when she was ovulating.
face, neck, elbows, hands, knees, eyelids, you name it. Awful. Vein and joint damage too. I remain interested in knowing whether anyone else reporting skin problems here was prescribed a quinolone within the year or so before they surfaced. These drugs attack collagen, elastin, and apparently send free radical formation into overdrive, all of which contribute to aging. These effects are all documented; wish I'd known, not to mention my doctor, before I took the meds.
