Overcoming Sore Wounds On The Eyelids Under The Eyebrows?
Hello, doctor. I want to ask. On the part of my eyelids, around the outer area just below the eyebrows, there is a small oval-shaped wound. Around the wound is red, while the center of the wound itself is pale-slightly yellow. The wound looks like it is peeling and there is skin piling up. If I touch it or move the muscles around my eyes, it will sting. Even though so far, I have no allergies to the products I use, and I have never used makeup / products on the eyes (such as eyeshadow, etc.). The beginning of this wound was when 2/3 days ago I massaged my eyelid area. I felt awkward because there was a burning sensation on my left eyelid, while not at all on the right. The next day, suddenly there was a red spot on my eyelid that felt sore. Now, the wound looked like a blister that had deflated. How to solve it or relieve it for a while? What are the causes of the injury? And what should I do? Please advise. thanks.
hello Chika han,
Injury to the area around the skin of the eye can result from several possible causes, such as:
Allergic reactions, can be caused by exposure to certain allergens or chemicals such as cosmetics, contact lenses and others
Viral infections such as herpes, smallpox and others
Bacterial infection either on the eyelid or on the lining of the eye
Skin inflammation or dermatitis
Hordeolum or stye
To be sure, it is necessary to do an examination by a doctor so that later treatment is given according to the cause. For the time being, what can be done includes avoiding rubbing your eyes, avoiding the use of cosmetics and exposure to allergens, washing your hands before and after touching your eyes, using eye protection such as glasses, getting enough rest and avoiding exposure to screens or gadgets for a long time and getting checked out immediately. doctor. Also try to avoid using medicated ointments without doctor's recommendation first so as not to add to the complaints that arise.
