Eyelid Eczema

Eyelid Eczema.

One skin disorder that can be tricky to treat is eyelid eczema. When eczema breaks out on your eyelids you need to be careful on how it is treated as you don’t want to damage or irritate your eyes. You will need to consult a doctor who will recommend most suitable treatment.

Eyelid eczema is not as common as other forms of eczema. It simply breaks out on the eyelids in the same way it does on other parts of the body. It starts as irritated skin that also flakes, itches, and has a red or rash-like appearance. This can be a painful, make the sufferer self conscious and it is tricky to treat.

An outbreak of this on the eyelids can make a person grab their dark glasses to hide their eyes from the world. It is also hard for the sufferer not to scratch the skin on the eyelids as the itch can be severe. Rather than become upset if you suffer from eyelid eczema, stay calm and determine the reason it is happening.

Contact with allergens is one of the prime causes for eczema to break out on the eyelids. This can be anything from cosmetics used on or around the eyes, to smoke and other irritants. People with allergies to plants can have trouble during certain times of the year. Of course, avoiding contact with the allergen normally helps this clear up.

Finding the allergen is not always easy. Sometimes an allergy test has to be given by a medical professional. You could also have a problem staying away from it if it is something you have to deal with in your job. Other times though it is a simple matter of trying different brands of cosmetics.

While eczema that occurs on the body will respond to light therapy, steroid creams, and various other medications. Some of these will not work with eyelid eczema, or they are simply not suitable for the eyelids. The facial area especially around the eyes is very delicate and can be affected by too harsh a treatment. Even the milder strengths of steroid creams can cause reactions when used on the eye area.

The light therapy could also hurt not just the eyelids but the eyes themselves affecting your vision.

If the eyelid eczema is mild you may just try some vitamin E oil on it. This may clear it up without hurting your eyes. If this does not work then consult your doctor to see what he recommends. Do not try anything but things you know are safe around the eye area. Talking to your doctor first is a necessity.

You could take antibiotics if needed to clear up infections if they occur. Oral antibiotics will not hurt the eyes.

Antihistamines could be prescribed to alleviate the itching for eyelid eczema. Please be aware though that some antihistamines have sedating effects and should therefore be used cautiously if you have to do such things as operate machinery or drive in the course of your day.
