About 6 weeks ago my left eye lid suddenly had a dry patch of skin, essentially flaky it was so dry. Yet none of my eye lotions seemed to help - in fact they seemed to irritate it even more. I ended up using vaseline as it was the only thing that didn't make it hurt... My mom convinced me to use mycetracin/neosporin (because of the antibacterial effect), which I did.
Shortly after I started that, my right eye lid joined in the party. Now I have two inflamed eye lids that I am unhappily loading up with neosporin each day. Not exactly an attractive look and it is incredibly annoying.
I had started a new eye lotion about a month prior to the rash... could this have done it? Other than that, I had quit taking birth control pills 3 months prior and a friend told me that hormone changes can cause dry skin patches...
What should I do?
Thanks for your advice! :)
