Swollen eyelids and itchy scaling

In view of the fact that the skin around the eyelids is verysensitive, they easily form edema. The main causes of reddening of the eyelids can be various diseases, mechanical effects, as well as some nonspecific factors: insufficient exposure to fresh air, eating not the night, excessive drinking, temperature changes, smoking, lack of sleep, cosmetics and others. Redness indicates a number of common disorders in the functioning of the body's basic systems. It is accompanied by pain sensations, skin hyperthermia, fever.

The following diseases can provoke irritation of the skin of the eyelids:

  • blepharitis,
  • conjunctivitis,
  • demodicosis,
  • anemia,
  • insomnia,
  • allergy,
  • barley,
  • metabolic disorders,
  • molluscum contagiosum,
  • viral infections,
  • endocrine disorders,
  • immunodeficiency,
  • bacterial (streptococcal, staphylococcal) infections of the eyes,
  • disorders in the work of the digestive tract.

Unsatisfactory sanitary and hygienic conditions, lack of minerals and vitamins can also provoke inflammation of the skin around the eyes.

All causes of abscess of the eyelid are associated with injuriesskin, it can be biting insects or squeezing barley. The abscess can develop due to the inflammatory processes of the paranasal sinuses. The disease is characterized not only by puffiness: the edge of the eye thickens, and along the line of eyelash growth scales of dirty yellow color appear, which easily separate. As a rule, the reddening of the upper eyelid is accompanied by tearing, burning, itching, increased sensitivity to wind and light.

Quite often the reason is preciselyblepharitis. It affects, in the first place, those who use contact lenses, since the eye and eyelid turn out to be permanently mechanical, and the likelihood of infection is also high. I distinguish several forms of blepharitis:

Depending on the disease, its symptoms also differ. At the initial stage there is a slight thickening and reddening of the skin, and in the corners of the eyes a liquid of white-yellow color accumulates. The scaly form is shown by scales not only on a century. Scales can appear on the eyebrows and on the head. In the event that blepharitis passes to the head, it flows into seborrheic dermatitis.

Demodectic, ulcerative and rosacea-blepharitis -extremely severe forms of the disease, accompanied by itching, ulceration and painful sensations. From the edges of the eyes oozing sticky liquid. The allergic form of the disease is provoked by the body's reaction to the allergen.

Blepharitis can occur with symptoms of such eye diseases as corneal ulcer, barley, haljazion, keratitis, acute meibomite and conjunctivitis.
