Every year around this time (mid-March to mid-April), I begin to have a severe allergic reaction to pollen (I assume pollen is the cause, anyway) that causes the skin of my eyelids, under eyes, and the skin
on my brows to dry out and swell up, leaving the skin
dry, bright red, puffy, and wrinkled. I look about twenty years older overnight. Allergy medications seem to buffer the symptoms but do not suffice to keep the problem at bay. I am 25 and appear to be about 45 with a drug problem.
