I have had the same symptoms (red swollen eyelids, both top and bottom, red swelling on the skin
to the outside of the eyes, flakey, dry itchy too) for
about 5 weeks. I thought it was becuase I am newly pregnant (hormones?) - have tried the baby soap and have been not wearing makeup, washed all my makeup brushes, changed pillow case more often and nothing is helping. However, Aveeno HAND cream does help with the dryness and itching a bit, but it does not cure it.
