Eczema? Hmm? Eyeball rash!
A few weeks ago I noticed under my right eye was a weird reddish/peely spot. It has not gone away, but seems to react violently (red stingy) to any sort of moisturizer I own (perfume in eye cream perhaps??). It also gets super red and puffy then if I leave it alone gets flaky skin, peely and then seems to want to repeat the cycle by getting puffy red again.
I stopped using anything on my eyes at all on Monday when it was so red it looked like I had been decked LOL!! It got peely looking and better but then this morning I noticed it was slightly red and a little puffy (much less than when I use any moisturizer/make-up remover).
I also have a little tiny patch about the size of a pencil eraser on the lid over my left eye and I can feel a a teenier patch on the crease of my upper right eye lid :(
I got the Aveeno eczema/cortisol oatmeal stuff and put it on a few hours ago, it did not cause a reaction and has smoothed the scalies on the smaller patches. The redness on the bigger area is the same.
I won't be able to get into the doctor until Thursday if then.
Anyone had anything similar? I have never had this happen before. I'm 41, have not changed products. I did have eczema on my right hand almost 25 years ago after working at a place with super harsh chemical detergent but that's it.
