I followed the directions, the problem subsided, and after several weeks came back, again on the left only. In the meantime, I stayed away from
creams and only used Cetaphil or nothing at all. And it's been like this, off an on all the time. I did not use any eye make up at the time. Several months ago I started using make up again, had no problems, and then out of the blue, again, my left eyelid got swollen, then red, then itchy and then scaley.
