Ask an Eye M.D. Answer Archive
Please read our important medical disclaimer.
About eight months ago, the inner corner of my right upper eyelid was itching, and then it started swelling. I didn't use anything and after a few days, the swelling went down but left the area very dark. Recently, this itching and swelling has reoccurred and I don't know what to do.
I would suggest that you see an Eye M.D. The signs and symptoms presented may represent a contact dermatitis or other condition, however, an examination is needed to fully evaluate your concern.
