Eczema on Eyelids
Does anyone have any great advice for treating eczema on eyelids?
My eyelids are red and irriated, and VERY itchy. I have stopped wearing all forms of makeup and still they continue to itch!
I am too scared to use steriod based creams as the skin on the eyelids is so incredibly thin already and I know these creams can make it worse!
Appreciate any feedback.
You might want to try a 5% concentration of tea tree oil. You can dilute that in a base oil, or even in shea butter.
You can apply this in many different ways. You can goop it on and let it rest for 15 minutes, and wipe it off. Or apply a thin coat and gently rub it in and leave it there.
A 5% concentration is key here, any less will most likely be ineffective.
Hope this helps.
P.S.: If anyone else has any solution or ideas, let Sally know by adding your comment to the mix!
