About a month ago I noticed some peeling in the crease of my left eye. A week later I woke up with my whole eyelid swollen and red. The same day I had a pap smear and my doctor noticed that I was having some irritation from toilet paper. He also noticed my eye and said he thinks I have developed sensitive skin especially because earlier this summer I had an allergic reaction to tampons. So I switched to all clinique makeup. The swelling has gone down but I am still peeling and my eye lid is slightly droopy. It has now spread to under my left eye and I am now starting to notice peeling around my right eye. I am 26 and I have oily skin. My face never gets dry or peels. Until two months ago I had never had any allergic reactions. So I'm really confused as to what is going on. Any ideas.
I am 60 yo male my issue started with dry skin above right eye but has now spread to over and under both eyes. Dr said it was the skin disease that causes dandruff and prescribed Selsun Blue. After3 days not getting worse or better around eyes but now have itchy red skin on neck and thighs. Any advice?
