Seborrheic eye eczema is a form of skin inflammation of unknown cause. The signs and symptoms of seborrheic eye eczema include yellowish, oily, scaly patches of skin on the eyelids and redness. Dandruff in the eyebrows is also a classic sign of seborrheic eye eczema. It is commonplace for seborrheic dermatitis to inflame the skin around the eyes and at the creases under the eyes and at the corners of the eyes. Seborrheic dermatitis is not necessarily associated with itching. This condition tends to run in families. Emotional stress, oily skin and weather conditions may all increase a person’s risk of developing seborrheic eye eczema.
I wanted to share my story because I seem to be having success clearing my PD and rosacea. Like most of the sufferers here I have spent hours upon hours chasing a cure (I have also had acne all my life and I am turning 50 in April). This is what I have learned. I finally broke down and started Ted's Borax remedy because I read how people had had success with it. I also researched Boron supplementation in case I could not tolerate the Borax because that is essentially the element you are getting from the Borax. I am very sensitive to things so, to make a long story short, the Borax was tough for me to tolerate (stomach ache from it), so I have decided to go with the Boron supplements even though they are more expensive (still very reasonable, though).
