Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

are you available to chat?

Dr. Rick :


Dr. Rick :

are you in the chat room.


yes. Hello. So keep doing what I have done for the past 2 days while the Rt. lid worsened and the lesft lid has now become affected?

Dr. Rick :

Sorry we missed each other. It sounds like may have a little bit of eczema, or perhaps a local allergic reaction. I suggest that you continue the baby shampoo lid scrubs and add a small amount of over the counter 1% hydrocortazone cream to the affected areas 3x/day. Cool compresses may help some also.

Dr. Rick :

If things are not any better by Monday you may want to see your primary care MD, or perhaps a dermatologist.
