Question
Posted by: Kelly | 2011/01/16

swollen upper eyelid

The inner corner of my eyelid, is swollen, red and it burns. It started out looking like dry, scaly skin. I scratched the skin off and it became swollen and it burns. I tried putting aloe on it first and then neosporine, but neither one helped. Could you please tell me what is wrong and how to treat it?

It is possible that you have an infection of the eyelid and you should consult yor doctor for an examination, in case a small abscess has formed an that needs to be drained.
