Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello and thanks for your question. What poison do you have on your eyelids and how did it get there?
Yes, Benadryl can be helpful, but I would recommend using a better OTC antihistamine such as Zyrtec or Allegra or Claritin.
I would also recommend getting some OTC 1% hydrocortisone ointment (not cream) and rubbing that on your eyelids twice daily. In addition, cool compresses over the eyes used liberally can help calm down the inflammation quicker. Usually having poison ivy on the eyelids doesn't cause any permanent eye damage; it's just a pain in the rear for a few days. Does that make sense?
That's all I think you really need to do for right now. Do you have any other questions about this?
If not, your feedback is important to me and will help me improve my encounter with future customers. If at any time you feel this process has been helpful, please rate your encounter with me by providing feedback; any positive feedback and/or bonus you may feel prompted to provide would be welcomed and is appreciated. This does not end our conversation, however-we can continue to discuss any of your concerns without further charges until you are satisfied.
