Customer Question
I have a scaly...

I have a scaly place about the size of a finger print on my eyelid. It is Red and vitamin C and E oil does not help.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is your eyelid swollen at all?

I do not wear eye makeup.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not that I can think of.
