H01.1: Noninfectious dermatoses of eyelid
Your eyelid is inflamed.
The eyelids along with the lashes are located above and under the eye. They protect the eye from injuries and drying out. Fat, muscles, and several glands are included in the eyelid, among other things. For example, sebaceous glands form fatty mucus for the layer of fluid on the eye.
The eyelid can get damaged by foreign bodies, for example, or irritating substances. As a result, the skin on your eyelid has changed. For example, the skin may then be red or flaky.
When the eyelid is inflamed, the eye may be sore or itch. Sometimes the eyelashes stick together. Or it can feel as though there is something in one’s eye.
