Is a Rash on My Eyelids an Infection?
FEB 13, 2013
I have a red, slightly itchy rash around the skin of my eyelids—is this a possible allergic reaction?
Yes, it is a possible allergic reaction and that is the most likely diagnosis. However, other things can cause this: for example, certain infections or other types of skin diseases like rosacea. If it persists for more than a couple of days or is associated with considerable swelling and/or pain then this may be something more serious and you should see your ophthalmologist right away.
