I tried every natural remedy I read about or thought might possibly work but my eyelid eczema wouldn't clear up. I finally went to a dermatologist and he prescribed Elidel. He said that it might cause a burning sensation at first but I didn't experience that. The eczema cleared up after a few days and then returned. I used Elidel again for 4 or 5 days until the eczema was gone. That was 4 1/2 months ago and my eyelid has been completely normal since then.
When I read the precautions included with the tube, I was hesitant to use it but since the amount needed was so tiny, I decided to try it. I'm glad I did.

I'm glad that worked for you. I was scared to be that intensive. I used Arbordoun's Calendula Cream. It feels smooth and soothing. The lady at the health food store recommended it -- said it had worked for her little toddler with excema. I can't say it's a "cure" -- at first I used it every day, and now I'm down to about once every 3-5 days. There are no signs, because as soon as I feel my lids getting a little bit dry, I put on one light coating and I'm good for a while. It's not expensive either and feels nice. I think my initial trigger was nail polish...
