Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
It sounds like you may have eczema. It is not uncommon for this to affect the face/cheek as well as the eyelids.
I would forgo the grapeseed oil and try 1%hydorcortizone cream twice a day.
Also a little bit of vasoline in the morning can help.
Why would I develop eczema at this age in my life - I've never had it before!
It can pop up anytime in life....
I'd give it a week of this treatment and if things aren't better see your primary care MD, or if you can get into one in a timely fashion, a dermatologist.
Dost this make sense to you?

Seriously, eczema? Can I get hydrocortizone cream at the pharmacy?
