Question:

Itching, red, swollen eyelids

Dear Ask The Doctor:
Would triancinolone cream 5% ever be prescribed for itching, red, swollen eyelids?


Answer:

Though triamcinolone can be prescribed for itching and red eyelids, a 5% dose is too strong. A weaker steroid with 0.1% triamcinolone can be used on the face and eyelids.
