I would be very careful when applying it. Only use it if you do not have diabetes. Do not get it in your eyes. Do this in conjunction with the cool compresses. The cool compresses alone work for me when I get such allergy flareups. Either way, it should be better by tomorrow.
What do you have the desonide for?
Hope this helps.
It is low potency, but would help some along with the compresses. If you have the ophthalmic formulation, then you don't have to worry about getting in eyes (but you really only need it for the lids).
