    Default Eczema

    So the weather is getting cold here and even with our high humidity it's gotten dryer than normal. And for the last few years, maybe 4 or 5 I have been getting dry itchy patches on my eye lids, they are so uncomfortable and prevent me from wearing make up yet I need my mascara, anyone have any idea on what will help?

    You might try a little olive oil. I know, that sounds gross, but nothing works so well. I'm serious. I have to deal with dry skin 24/7/365 because of Sjogrens syndrome, so I know how irritating it can be.

    The oil will absorb in 10 to 15 minutes and I've never had trouble applying make-up over it. Takes down inflammation and kicks dry skin in the pants.

    Just a suggestion!

    Note: These patches aren't caused by the make-up itself, are they? Like contact dermatitis? You haven't changed your make-up brand lately?

    On your eye lids? Wow, I usually only get it on my arms and legs so I just toss aloe lotion on it nice and thick after a shower and rub it in.

    Eczema please. The other spelling kinda makes my eyes bleed a little.

    I find aloe vera gel works best for me for a pure moisturizer, sometimes in combination with a silicone-based moisturizer which doesn't evaporate in the cold dry air.

    I don't wear a lot of make up and full face make up is rare, it's normally mascara and occasionally eyeliner, I am allergic to purple eyeliners though.....

    yes it's just mostly my eyelids and it's only in the winter months

    my facial allergies are more apparent than my other skin allergies

    The skin on the eye is some of the most sensitive on the body. I have to be very mindful of my eyes myself (can't use but one kind of mascara, and certain eyeliners are trouble too).

    I imagine that the problem with the purple eyeliner might have something to do with beetle extracts?

    I've always had mild allergies and sensitive skin on my face, but with the birth of my 3rd child my body chemistry changed. I use to have straight hair that I permed and now it's curly, I never had eczema before either. But with his pregnancy so much changed.

    I just happened to see the thread topic and have been studying some things on line for my friend who is sick with cancer.
    I have been reading today about something that is supposedly very well known and used in Europe (???? maybe someone here can tell us more)...
    anyhow...here is what I have been looking into...

    Six time nobel award nominated doctor says this essential nutrient combination actually prevents and cures cancer!

    Is this actually eczema, or is it the term you're using for "super super super sensitive" eyes?

    I don't have eczema. I do have "super super super sensitive" eyes, though. I was using cold cream and toilet paper to remove my eye makeup until i was 17, but I'd have to go a month or two without makeup every few weeks of using it because they'd get all swollen and red and itchy.
    (I have since learned to use cotton makeup pads and all is fine now.)

    I have to bring my own pillowcase when I sleep over at someone else's place. Last year I forgot when I spent the night at my grandparents' place and woke up with what looked like pink eye (without the pus) that took almost the whole day to disappear.

    I also cannot use kleenex on my eyes if I'm crying; the eyelid flap swells and loses its proper crinkliness and is awfully itchy.
