Can you get contact dermatitis on your eyelids?

Eyelid dermatitis

One of my eyelids is red with white bumps and seems to have spread. It does not itch. The other eyelid is normal. This has been going on for several days. What should I do?

Ive had the same thing I my lid. Thought it was something I touched. Never thought about me being allergic to ingredients. Especially, since it’s only on one lid, but makes sense. Skinsafe sounds like a great option. Is it an app?

It is an app or you can use the website.

This does look like dermatitis. You might want to check any new beauty or skin care product you might be using. It might be due to allergy or irritation caused by contact of skin with an ingredient(s). I would highly recommend using only ]]>Top FREE (hypoallergenic)]]> beauty or skincare products on SkinSAFE. Typical treatment would be a cortisone cream followed by a warm wet washcloth for 30 mins as often as every 3 hours. Additionally Zyrtec can be used. If it still continues you may want to consider patch testing. Always consult a physician

Hello Anon
A person can get contact dermatitis on the eyelids, yes. This is an allergic reaction. You will need to see a doctor/dermatologist for an evaluation and treatment plan since you don't have a diagnosis.
Best,
Susan
