I also have this problem. I have had it for over a year and a half now. When I first got it I went to a lot of different doctors. I tried everything from myconazol (anti-fungal) to corizone cream. Nothing worked at all. The rash seemed to spread into a very strange pattern on my body (it may be unrelated though) I had round rings everywhere. It looked a lot like ringworm but it wasn't, myconazol did nothing. Finally a doctor put me on a predizone tapper (it was almost an overdose of it). Anyways after 2 weeks of hell the ring type rashes disappeared and the rash on my eye seemed to go away. As soon as i went off the predizone the rash around the eye came back, but never the ring rashes. The doctor finnaly prescribed elidil which i used for a few weeks, it helped very little and it burned very bad. The doctor then prescribed locoid lipocream which was much gentialer than elidil. It helped control the rash somewhat but not much.
Now days i used the licoid when it starts to flair up but it is almost futile when it flairs. I have not figured out any rhyme or reason as to when it flairs up. It may be stress related but who knows. My right eye is much worse than my left. My right eye waters when it is bad which seems to make it worse. Touching my eye with my finger causes flair ups, touching it with a damp paper towel seems to help sooth it during a flair up. I have no idea what causes it but if we all share information we maybe can start connecting the dots.
So here is my info
From the midwest, no pets, symptoms started around the age of 21, I don't drink diet pop but do drink a lot of coke, i use tide with bleach for laundry soap, I never had any skin problems prior to this other than a small ring shapped rash that occasionaly appeared in armpits, but this rash never itched or burned. I seem to have bad dandruff that i can't get rid of, this also seems to be fairly recent. I am male, don't use cologne, and never put anything on my face.
Anyone drawing any connections?
