Common Questions and Answers about Itchy eyes and skin


Avatar m tn I have had itchy eyes and skin around the eyes for over 2 years. The problem started after I had conjunctivitis just over 2 years ago, I took a gel for this and the redness and worst symptoms cleared up but my eyes have been slightly itchy ever since. It's like the conjunctivitis never completely went away.
Avatar n tn I also get cold sores and I always fear spredding into my itchy eyes. I just had a cold sore and am trying to reconvince my self that my itchy eyes are a result of allergies and not herpes. So my question is, is it normal to have your eyelids and eyebrows itch too? When awoke this morning I felt good, I went to a friends and still felt good. Then after lunch they really started itching and after a little while I got scared and cried. After I alittle bit of crying they felt better.

When I tell her I see nothing, she gets angry with me and tells me I need to have my eyes checked. She obviously has something going on that makes her feel like she's being bitten.

Avatar m tn Also I experienced what seemed lilke really dry skin in the buttocks and inner thigh area. I have also been itchy all over, my eyes, arms, but no visible sign of anything.

I have been feeling really fatigued lately and dizzy. what could this rash be?
Avatar n tn I have excessive wrinkling from this aggrevation and took to using saline washes on the skin and in the eyes made from just table salt and warm water. This was the only thing then and now that has relieved this situation. The dermatologist told me I had a simple case of exzema and to put petroleum jelly around my eyes and olive oil, both which ecsacerbated the irritation and intensified the itching.

Avatar n tn I am left with scaley, sagging skin above and below my eyes, and bags of fluid that collect under my eyes right above my cheek bones. My skin responds as though it has been burned by crusting over and collecting fluid. It's painful and the only thing that helps is cortisone shots, which I don't want to take the rest of my life. Please help me with some direction as to what kind of physician I should see and what my condition might possibly be.
Avatar f tn you want to scratch your eyes out) or the skin around the eye area itself? Depending on how bad it is and whether it is worsening I would (a) definitely ask your doc about it and (b) maybe experiment with a few things until you can detect the origin. Sorry that is vague but this can be tricky.
Avatar f tn I used a washcloth compress to get the swelling down and the eyes continued to be red and swollen and itchy and I noticed little blisters kind of like what I get when I wear cheap jewelry and get a chemical reaction from the metal. I have tried some Zatidor eyedrops-antihistime twice daily. It does seem to help a little inside the eye (very little).

Avatar n tn My face and eyes become unbearably itchy. I cannot bear to have a strand of hair touching my face and must slick it back off my face every day and night. At its very worst (which it gradually builds up to) my vision becomes blurred and double vision and cannot read or see details. The skin around my eyes has become extremely wrinkled - like a little old ladies with dark circles around them (I look like I'm on drugs).
Avatar m tn I got itchy red and dry skin around my eyes it is on the upper eyelid up to the eyebrows and spreads around the corner of my eyes to under my eyes. It turns really red and burns some days and then ease off some days.
606428 tn?1220238336 here is a post i just made this mourning about itchy legs and skin with no rash hope it helps! Are you guys ready for this?! I have figured it out!

Avatar n tn There had been a really informative thread here one day about skin & itching, that I cannot locate now, duh...anyway I think it might have been NY Girl (possibly?) discussing with a few others here about the gold bond products & them having a noticable menthol like smell to them. The were so right, I think there were 2 cream choices (packaging 1 green bottle & 1 yellow bottle) but I had taken a lil sniff, so pungent.
Avatar n tn Even though I stopped using both products, the rash got worse and now my eyelids above and underneath my eyes are swollen. Additionally, my eyes are very red, a little itchy, and there are tiny red bumps. What product do I need to take, in order for this to go away as soon as possible. Is there any cream or medication? A few months ago, I was using all proactive product and a similar thing happened. also, it took a really long time to go away.

Avatar n tn i'm a 29 year old female with a very itchy slightly raised and slightly redenned skin rash to the face coupled with large raised circular bumps that are also itchy which come and go on my scalp. also have a very itchy hive like rash on the roof of my mouth that come and go with certain foods,especially dried fruit. the rash on my face is worst along the cheek bone area and extends around the sides of my eyes up to my forehead covering it also, plus my nose and some very minor on my chin.
Avatar n tn My eyelids will get red and swollen, sometimes dry, itchy and flaky, tearing will sting the eyelids. Underneath the eye swells too. I haven't been wearing contacts for months. The irritation also comes around my mouth. It doesn't usually touch the lips. Last year I was told it was ezcema. I use Cetaphil moisturizing bar soap and cream. I don't want to go another winter like this, It has just started up this week. Any ideas?
Avatar f tn The swelling is especially bad under my eyes, and sometimes I have what looked like under-the-skin blisters. The skin around my eyes, especially underneath, seems to lose every bit of moisture and draw up, making me look about a hundred years old (I'm 61). I've tried all sorts of creams, but the only thing that seems to give me relief is vaseline.
