Eyelids are red, itchy & appear to have scattered bumps on

Resolved Question:

Eyelids are red, itchy & appear to have scattered bumps on them. Stopped wearing eye shadow about 2 wks ago & it didn't make any difference. I am holding warm compresses on them each nigh & applying a basic eye beauty cream but there is no difference. If I start to rub them the itch is much worse.
What can I do or buy?

You can try some hydrocortisone cream on the lids 2-3 times a day; however, do not get them in the eyes. There are stronger prescription ointment to use, but they require a visit to your doctor. Cool compresses can also help alleviate. I would leave off any beauty cream for now.


Hope this helps and thank you.
