Common Questions and Answers about Red skin around eyes


Avatar n tn it started yesterday and my left upper eye lid was swollen aswell. today the skin around both eyes is red, dry and burns when \i put moisturizer on it. i thought it might be eczema cuz of the cold but why would it start only now?
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.
Avatar f tn My skin also is red around the outside edge of my eyes and a little bit under my eyes is red as well. I have hpv, hsv-2, and a form of poxvirus that causes lower abdominal mulloscum contagiosum. Apart from the skin rosacea and overall weakening of my skin, the redness around the outside of my eyes has become embarrassing and tough to control strictly by stress levels and sleep habits. Is there something else wrong? Dr did blood tests and says I am perfectly normal otherwise.
Avatar n tn I have the same issue: tiny red bumps around both eyes - sometimes many and sometimes a few, sometimes itchy and sometimes not, sometimes sore. I've had it since July. They also sometimes appear in the creases around my mouth and around my nose. I have no history of allergies, and am generally really healthy. Help!
Avatar f tn for a bout 2 years now i have had dry skin around my eyes - its red and scaly and sore the doctor has given me creams and none of them work - the skin is scaly and inflamed all at the same time anyone had this before?
Avatar f tn What is the cause of itchy and red dry skin around the eyes; also the skin flakes off. Uncomfortable condition.
5519088 tn?1369149479 I am wary with using corticosteroid as it permanently thins the skin, and the area around the eyes is already thin. I have also tried Bacroban Cream (mild effect) and Ichthammol Ointment 20% (mild effect). What I believe started this is a multitude of things. For about a year I have been juicing as much as possible, and when juicing I skin a large aloe leave and after blending in the 'meat' I wipe the skin over my hair and skin as a kind of conditioner.
Avatar n tn What you describe, around your eyes, does sound like an allergic reaction. I can’t tell from your note whether you developed the swelling and dryness before or after the Keflex® (cephalexin monohydrate) was given. The redness could well be a reaction to the Keflex® (cephalexin monohydrate). You would do best to accept your doctor’s diagnosis of infection and his/her recommendation of treatment for it. Both redness and swelling could be either allergy or infection.

Avatar f tn I greatly appreciate it. Lately I’ve been having extreme issues with red/swollen/dry skin around my eyes. This has only begun recently – it started about three weeks ago, and at first appeared only as bits of dry skin. But as time has gone on, it’s gotten worse and worse. Now it’s to the point where it’s almost painful just to blink, and stings horribly when I wash my face. The stinging continues for about half an hour after I wash.
Avatar n tn The redness also seems to stand, at times, in stark contrast to patchy, blanched areas of white around my eyes. The skin is smooth to the touch and not bumpy, just red with white patches. It's really annoying and causes me to be extremely self-conscious. Any idea?
Avatar f tn So lately the skin around my eyes have been getting incredibly dry. Not only that, they've also started to itch. To add on to this, now the skin around my eye is puffy and red/purple. I honestly got asked if I was okay and if I got punched in the eye. Please help anyone!! I know the skin around your eye is incredibly sensitive so I don't know what to do.
Avatar n tn This morning, after straining during a bout with constipation, I found I had red dots above, under, and along side of my left eye. The right eye is nearly as bad. Seems it would be broken blood vessels...but what to do? Heat, cold? Will this go away. I am 54, does that mean I may have this always? (It looks like red freckles,on the skin not on the eyeball).
Avatar m tn I awoke 12 hrs ago with red puffy circles around my eyes. I first thought it was lack of sleep since I am a new parent but soon realized it was far worse than "tired eyes". My eyelids are swollen with one top lid being more fluid filled and puffy. There is a red rash on the far sides of both my eyes and the skin is slightly broken, mildly irritated and burns a bit. The bags under my eyes are now wrinkled and look streched with dry patches throughout.
Avatar n tn My husband has been having skin rashes around his eyes, raised small red bumps, for several months and just won
Avatar n tn Hi, I have spots around my eyes they started of as little white spots & are now red & sore. My skin is also really dry around my eyes (even eye creams sting?). What are they & what can I put on them to get rid of them. They look horrendous.
Avatar n tn I think the purple spots around eyes in hiv are KS lesions with is a type of skin cancer, this would be a latent stage of hiv
Avatar f tn I'm 17 years old, and for the past eight months to a year, the skin around my eyes has been really dry. It peels also. I'm trying everything I can to prevent this. At night, I put Dermasil: 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.
Avatar n tn I am having this skin rashes around my lips and around my eyes. It looks white in coulour to me i had it for past 3 months. Actually i neglected it and like a month ago it went away but now it came back i dont know why it gets really really itchy and its spreading under my eyes and lips very fast.
Avatar n tn dry and itchy on the outside skin around my eyes. I didn't have trouble with my vision or inside of my eyes, at that point. About the 5th month of the meds, the itchy skin and very dry skin was still a problem. My GI prescribed Elidel cream, which helped somewhat but not completely. I also broke out with the rash other places on my body that was a real bother.
Avatar f tn I have dark circles around my eyes and I have dandruff too. I try and put cucumber slices around my eyes but it has not helped. Since last 1 month, the skin under my left eye has started peeling. Not the whole aread but just a little patch under my eye is peeling. Prior to it started peeling, it was very itchy hence I scratched a bit. This itchiness and peeling was initially under both eyes but now its only under left eye. I put moisturiser for soothing but the peeling has not stopped.
Avatar n tn I understand that it comes from a pooling of blood in those areas and shows through the thin skin around the eyes. However, I used to be able to make it go away simply by getting a good night's sleep with my head elevated. Lately though, that hasn't been the case. In the past half a year or so it hasn't been going away.
