welcome to just answer
are you present online?
Yes I am present online
kindly give me some more information regarding your question-
when did you get the estrogen ring placed?
I have a rash on both eye lids and the area around the bottom of eye
when was the oestrogen ring placed?
are you ble to read my query?
this was first place three months ago, the second one was placed 12-16-10. the eye rash has been on going for about 2 months, it just seem it has worsten these past two weeks.,
is the rash itchy?
from the rash?
is the rash present on any other body part?
what ointment are you applying?
stye otc ointment
are you applying any eye shadow or any new lotion on the face or eyelids?
no, I don't use eye make-up
the rash you are describing is mostly allergic in nature
usually with an allergic reaction with an estrogen ring, the rash should not be limited to the eyelids
it should involve other body parts
but since your rash seems to have appeared during the course of estrogen therapy, it does seem the most probable cause
you need to consult your Ob/gyne for an alternate treatment
because if your are allergic to estrogen, then this rash can increase with further estrogen therapy
in the meantime you can take oral anti-allergic like benadryl
and apply 1% hydrocortisone ointment on the rash (available OTC)
hope this is helpful
do you need any more information?
have a problem of applying 1% hydrocortisone ointment so close to the eyes!
1% hydrocortisone is very safe to be applied on the eyelids
apply a very thin layer on the eyelids, it is a very mild medicine and would not affect the eyes
