eyelid redness

I had eyelid surgery 10 weeks ago. They seemed to be healing nicely, but after about 5 weeks they began looking more red and feeling tight, like dry skin. They do not itch, but the skin appears to look like eczema possibly. The redness is the area from the incision down to the lashes, not above the incision at all. The doctor brushed it off and told me to come back in 4 weeks. After 4 weeks he was still not concerned and told me to come back in 2 months. They do not appear infected, just more red than I would expect. Does this seem normal? I have been using Burt's Bees eye cream and it temporarily makes them less tight, but by the next day they are back to tight and still red. I have also tried Bio Oil.
