Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
You have already done the most important thing by washing off the oils with soap and water.
Cold compresses will also help. It is not clear from your post whether or not you are already experiencing a rash. If you do not yet have a rash then I believe that no further steps are needed.
Hi. My system shows that you just entered the chat room. Can you see my posts above?
Are you there?
What can I apply topically to my eyelids, or take by mouth to
Topical remedy to stop rash development?, oral remedy?
Do you have a rash now?
If you have been exposed to poison ivy in the past, do you always get a rash?
I'd take 50mg of benadryl by mouth. As far as topical things there is nothing that is needed if you don't have a rash as these agents don't prevent the rash formation they just treat the rash after it shows up.
Does this make sense to you?
Washing with soap and water, like you have already done, is by far the best topical treatment you could have done.
Yes, however, what about Ivarest or like products applied to eyelids.
that is used to decrease the symptoms (itch) of a poison ivy rash. It does nothing to prevent the rash from forming or make the rash, should it show up, any less uncomfortable. So, in this light, I do not think ivarest would be of any benefit at this juncture.
