Red eyelids, puffiness, flakiness, dry eyes. Red patches on fingers, swollen knuckles. Related?

Hi there. So, my eyelids are red, a little bit puffy, flaky, and it has spread to my eye brows. They re heavy (so I always feel tired), and my vision is a little bit blurry.My eyes are also very dry. Also there s tiny blisters or bumps spreading on other places of my face. It started a few months ago along with flaky, sore feet that have formed hard spots, and rough, dry, red patches on my hands/ fingers. Swollen knuckles and all. I m curious as to if they re related...? I went to my doctor and she prescribed me a medal dose pack and some steroids cream but none if them has helped.

It appears that your eye lids are inflamed and you have some skin disorder that is interrelated . I suggests that you consult a dermatologist and then get back for eye checkup and proper management of the condition. Inflamed knuckles can be due to inflammatory joint disease all these may be related and dry eye is increased by all these problems.get your Rh factor also checked.
Take care
