Red, itchy eyes with heavy lids

heavy lids in the evening, followed by crusty lids in the morning Several months ago, I experienced red, itchy eyes with heavy lids in the evening, followed by crusty lids in the morning for 2 or 3 weeks, then it stopped, then returned 2 weeks later for a week and stopped again. Then only heavy lids in the evening, followed by crusty lids in the morning with no redness or itchy for like 3 months straight now. Hard to keep eyes open when heavy, makes me feel like I should just go to bed early. What gives?

I have been making my own skin care . Im having issues with my eyes and was wondering if stearic acid or sodium lactate could be contributing. My eyes are red under and my lids are itchy and there seems to be a red patch on one of my lids and my eyes are burning a bit. Ive done alot of research on oils and preservatives and have improved my eye cream a few times. Please help. Tyla

Hello doctor, Recently,I had some irritation under my eyes,it s not itchy,but was red and raw.My lips were dry and irritated as well.I had some kind of lesion on my upper lid,and I had the same symptom on my arms.I suspect it s due to insect bite.I went to clinic,and the doctor prescribed me with vitamin C and calamine lotion.I had been applying the lotion for 2 days,and now my under eye is not red anymore,but the area was extremely dry,and there is a scar over for my lips,its getting drier and more irritated,i even have burning feeling on my lips.I didn t apply calamine lotion on my lips,as i m not sure bout it s effect on my lips.I don t know what to do.I would like suggestions to ease up the burning sensation on my lips.
