Why do I have itchy, scaly red patches on my eye lids and under eyes?Skin, Hair & Nails
Hello, I recently purchased Tata Harper Skincare products and have experienced itchy, red scaly patches on my eyelids and under eye. It comes and go and gets extremely itchy and red after a long day. I’ve done some research online and found that it might be eye contact dermatitis. Do I need to see a dermatologist or can I go to my family GP to get a prescription? Thanks!
If there’s a definite temporal association between using the new product and the appearance of the itchy red rash, then yes it’s likely that it’s some form of dermatitis related to the product.
Dermatitis is also more likely if you are not getting the rash anywhere else on your body, and also have never had the rash before, nor any personal or family history of eczema/psoriasis.
The fact that the red patch comes and goes however warrants further investigation by your doctor – there may be something else in this story.
In this situation, I’d suggest for you to see a dermatologist – they are the experts with red itchy scaly patches 🙂
