Answered by Dr. Ronald Schubert 1 hour later
Brief Answer:
Sunburned eyelids

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for contacting HCM with your health care concerns

I am sorry to hear that you burned your eyelids from skiing. There is very little you can do to speed healing of the skin. The best advise I can give you is to take aspirin 3-4 times a day and use cold compresses on your eyelids until the pain eases. You could also add some skin moisturizes to the eyelids to keep them from drying out. But overall time sill be the best thing to heal the burn.

I wish you the best. If you have any additional questions please contact us if you have any further questions
