Over the day it got worse. Now the top eye lid is swollen, and red. It is also tender to the touch. My eye seems fine, and my vision seems normal, aside from the fact that the lid is swelling a bit. Also, I am a contact wearer, but have never had issues with that. I do not have my contacts in now.

It turned out that the lower eye lid is extremely puffy, and there are red marks on the part of the lid closest to the eye. The puffiness is well to the side and maybe a cm below the eye. It feels fine---just swollen, and my vision isn't affected, other than the fact the lid is occulting the lower third of my eye. When I woke up I had been lying on my face, for whatever that's worth. It's been most of a day though and it's staying the same. Any ideas? thanks!

Now and since about mid-April I've been having problems with my left eye again. I can feel my left eye lid (or more like the part right under the eyebrow) being ''heavier'' and again this sort of ''swelling movement'' on it. It's not particularly red and in my opinion only slightly swollen, it wouldn't be visible to anyone not looking at it, but this feeling of heaviness and swelling on my eyelid is now slowly driving me crazy after two months.
Make sure he takes a good shower and washes around the face and eyes to remove any residual irritants. As long as the eye is not red, painful and the vision blurred he should be fine. Lesson learned, don't rub your eyes especially with spicy food on the paw.

I do warm compresses and lid scrubs, but can I use steroids like Tobradex when I fell an attack coming on? Often they seem to be preceded by a stye. I'm suffering through one now and very anxious.
I have hyperthyroidism and have been on methimazole since August of 2007. Six weeks ago my eye lids began to swell and have remained swollen. I saw an eye specialist who said I have allergies. I am on my third week of steriod cream and eye drops ( I have chemosis too) and there's no improvement in the swelling. The eye doctor said I have no signs of thyroid eye disease and also that I do not even have Grave's disease which my endo said I do have.

Hi, The symptoms of dermatitis can be relieved by lid hygiene. It includes softening the lid margins, removal of lid margin debris, applying an ophthalmic antibiotic ointment and avoiding the use of eye makeup. Application of hot compress could further facilitate recovery. This needs to be practiced long term for relief from repeated attacks of dermatitis. Besides avoiding the allergen (if known) which causes theses symptoms could further prevent attacks.
My husband for two months or more has been plagued by what started as peeling dry skin around one eye and has progressed to both eyes, red almost like sunburn, peeling, swollen "pockets" of edema under the eyes, and itching. The redness and dry skin have spread to cheeks and forehead and now looks like a butterfly rash from lupus, but not other lupus symptoms. He has had in the past two years another short lived and far less severe attack of this but during the winter.

Please help ... Eye lid is driving me crazy!!!! Itchy, swollen, red eye lid comes goes away and comes back. I went to the opthamologist and he prescribed me drops and told me it was an eye allergy. At first my upper right eye lid was very dry and flaky with no itching. Then it gradually started to swell up, turn red, dry up and itch like crazy. I've never had this issue and its lasted a month already! I am not allergic to anything and have been using the same make up as I always have.
