Yes, the fact that the eyelid droop cleared on its own within hours shows that it is not of any neurological cause. The heaviness of the lid with itching and watering is likely to be an allergic reaction to the face cream entering the eye. You have done the right thing by washing the eye immediately as it helps to remove the irritant out of the eye .
Thank you so much Doctor
I would suggest that you use lubricating eye drops such as over the counter preservative free Refresh tears eye drops , 1 drop 4 times a day for about a week.
Along with that you can use over the counter anti-allergy eye drops such as Alaway/Zaditor eye drops, 1 drop twice a day for a week.
That I will do. The eye is also twitching but I get that on occasion. I will get the drops.
Twitching of the eye is quite a benign condition which does not point towards any underlying eye disease.
Thanks you again for your help.
You are most welcome :)
