Avatar f tn The past year I have been experiencing dry and peeling skin under my eyes. I've been using Eucerin calming cream on it and that seems to keep it under control. But if I stop for a few days, it comes back. It actually started on my eyelids last summer, but now is underneath my eyes more than above. I use Dermitage Skin Renewal and Lifting Cream, and sometimes Lift SP for wrinkles. But, the dryness started months before I started using those.
Avatar n tn I have very very dry and red skin under my eyes. I am not able to use any eye cream or it burns very badly. when i put on eye conceler it creates a very bad crease and i am only22. I am on solodyn and thought maybe that could be causing this. I am currently using cortizone and aquafor as that is the only thing that does not irritate me. What do i do?
Avatar n tn This helps prevent fluids from accumulating around your eyes as you sleep. * While sitting up, apply a cool tap water compress to the skin under your eyes for a few minutes. You can also use chilled cucumber slices, a refrigerated gel mask or chilled, damp tea bags. * Reduce allergy symptoms. Avoid allergens when possible, and ask your doctor about over-the-counter or prescription allergy medications.' You could read more about the condition at the following link - http://www.

Avatar n tn I am 37 and have dark circles and dry skin under and over the eyes. I found a product called Lacrilube, which has mineral oil in it, that I use when I have times of really dry eyes, then at night I use Clinique's All about Eyes to moisturize and during the day a cream from Clinique for dark circles. It seems to do okay for now, but I'm not sure it's really moisturizing like I need it to prevent that dryness.
Avatar f tn It started with a tender nose, from my lip to the tip of my nose and into the creases, and the next morning I woke to flaky, irritated skin. The dry skin above my eyes, just below my eyebrows, isn't nearly as bad. Usually moisturising helps with this area a fair bit. The flakiness under my nose however is much like dandruff, but a lot worse. I exfoliate and then moisturise (I have tried a few different moisturises, however after each one the dry area of my nose/eyes sting.
Avatar f tn My skin is usually pretty soft and normal, except for some reason it's gotten very DRY and kind of peely, but ONLY around my eyes. Under my eyes and above them but under the eyebrow. Even around the side sort of. It's frustrating and a little painful. Since it's so visible and unnatractive, I'd like to get rid of it ASAP, lol. I haven't had this problem before which is why it's baffling to me.
Avatar f tn I am just wondering if a solution of warm water and olive oil and using a cotton wool make up pad to apply will reduce the redness, puffiness and scaling of skin under my eyes? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/765268'>red under eye</a>.
Avatar n tn I have noticed that my skin under my eyes are very dry, puffy and red. It tends to get flaky and extremely dry after a few hours and when I don't apply moisturizer to it. I have been trying to treat it by applying lotion and vasaline to my skin several times a day and at night before I go to bed. It seems to be the same everyday. What else can I do to treat it?

Avatar f tn Also along with that, my eyelids are extremely dry and have a dry texture. Under my eyes is really dry also and there's creases under them that usually are there, and the dry skin seems to be scabbing in those creases. My eyelids are really red and also under my eyes. Also, when I touch any of these places it hurts like a sun burn does. Does anyone know what this is?
Avatar f tn Dry Skin Treatment Lotion and Petroleum Jelly on my eyes. It helps, but it takes two to three days for the peeling to go away. If I don't keep up with this, it returns. I've been to a doctor, and he prescribed eye drops to rub on the skin round my eyes. It worked for awhile, but once I stopped it came back. The skin isn't red or anything, just dry. What could it be? I already plan on setting up an appointment with a Dermatologist. Please help, thank you.
Avatar n tn Since I have gotten older, 39-40, each Spring I get dry, red, flaky patches under my eyebrows. Previous years I would take some allergy medicine and use some cortozone cream and it would clear up. This year, these don't work and it seems to be worse. Could this be rosacea or just an allergy that need another treatment?
Avatar m tn The Pegasys Medication Guide does list your symptom possible "Body Organ Problems" under "Skin Rash": (red or inflamed eyes, like "pink eye")... it does say that if you develop the rash with fever, blisters or sores in the eye, you should call your doctor right away. Hope it's not too bad.
Avatar n tn My adult daughter and I have developed small, red,somewhat puffy, scaly patches above our eyes. I have one patch above an eye; she has patches above both eyes and under one. No moisturizer seems to help but they do go the round of getting better and then coming back. What does it sound like? Any help would be appreciated.
1543395 tn?1293367109 Hello! over the last year i have suffered from on and off itch dry skin around my eyes and mouth, it usually happens when there has been an extreme change in weather, although it has also occurred randomly. I've never suffered from eczema and never get the irritation anywhere else on my body. i use moisturising creams and lip balms to try and moisturise the areas when they are really bad; this simply reduces the severity of the condition temporarily.
Avatar n tn Hi, Groups of tender small red papules appear most often around the eyes called periocular rash. The surrounding skin may be pink, and the skin surface often becomes dry and flaky.However, i would like to clarify if this sore is not of the blister kind to rule out the possibility of a herpes simplex virus. It is important to keep the area clean and dry. Try to avoid manipulating the area to avoid secondary infection.
Avatar n tn I have been wearing contact lense for the past 10 years. I have dry eyes and I had tried many different high water content contact lenses but I feel my eyes being strained and red veins start to appear on my eye white no matter which brand of contact lense I used. Recently I found that green veins are appearing under my eyes (at the eye bag area) and are spreading. Am I suffering from some kind of eye disease? what kind of eye checkup should I proceed with?
Avatar m tn Hi,i am 23 year old male . 1 year ago i started to scratch the skin under my eyes frequently as bad habbit due to which rashes under my both eyes developed,they were dry and flaky with little bit itching . Then i started using NERISONE ointment without doctor`s precription. After frequent use Rashes disappered ;at first i thought they were cured so i stopped using the above mentioned ointment but after 3-4 days they reappeared which really worried me.
Avatar f tn I think I may possibly have eczema under my eyes. My bottom lids are red and very dry, the skin tends to peel if i don't moisturize but even when I do they are still red. Is there any cream or medication that could prevent the redness while moisturize at the same time?
Avatar m tn If you are menopausal or post-menopausal be sure you and your gynecologist maintain optimal hormonal balance. (Many women with dry eyes have dry mouth and dry vaginal canal). If you have joint pain have that evaluated to be sure you don't have Sjorgren's syndrome. Many medications eg antihistamines can make dry eye worse. You might review your medications with your ophthalmologist.
Avatar n tn I have red, pimple-like with white heads bumps under my eyes. I have seen 2 eye doctors and 2 dermatologists and I was under the close supervision of a plastic surgeon for another problem (a basal cell carcinoma reconstruction). None of them was able to diagnose this problem. I tried all the antibiotics, eye and lid cleaners, drops, dry eye products (all the samples they had...) etc. but nothing helped. The warm patches work for awhile but the pimples always come back.

140622 tn?1190102529 I'm a 1a genotype, on week 8 of 72 weeks of PegIntron/Ribavirin TX. My skin is so dry. I can't seem to get it under control. I've tried oils, creams, oatmeal lotions, all applied directly after bathing and it still gets all dry. It feels like bumpy sandpaper. Does anyone have any tips?
