Psoriasis on and around the eyelids causes and treatments
Why psoriasis can develop near eyes and eyelid areas?
Psoriasis can start appearing anywhere on the body. If you have had eye infections, or suffer from chronic infections, these can leach out of the skin, and cause patch-like, scaly areas. They can be darker pink in hue or your general skin color.
Because our eyelids are a very sensitive flap of skin, having psoriasis patched areas around them can be very bothersome. Eyelids and general eye health can also easily have problems from vitamin deficiencies such as B vitamins (due to having chronic GI issues: B12, B2 (riboflavin) and several other B vitamins can be affected) and can develop tiny cuts or other irritations, and this could be another reason for development of psoriasis. Also, many times, having a lack of vitamins C, D and A, are other reasons for the development of skin issues due to a vitamin deficiency.
The eyelids can potentially develop psoriasis plaques because of these infections and inflammation in the body in addition to vitamin deficiency issues—these issues can be caused from a malabsorption problem in the duodenum (the first part of the small intestine, where food is turned into chime).
Always keep your face clean and use HOCL PurClarity Revitalizing Mist
It is important to wash your face and use products to help eliminate bacteria on your face, even more diligently, if you suffer from a chronic inflammatory or infectious condition. Our product HOCL Revitalizing Mist can help reduce chances of having breakouts or skin conditions such as psoriasis and be part of your clean face routine.
The mist can help to eliminate any bacteria on the skin that could develop plaques of scaly, flaky, irritated thick skin patches of psoriasis. The mist can be used several times a day to address breakouts or reduce chances of getting them.
First, determine the root cause of psoriasis around your eyelids
- Address any pink eye or other infection that may have spread to lid area
- Address any other skin issues that could be making psoriasis worse
- Candida/fungus/yeast can contribute to psoriasis
- Inflammation condition anywhere in the body
- Oral or topical medications that dry out or irritate skin
- Cheap make-up or products with too many chemicals; less natural ingredient products
- Viral or bacterial infection anywhere in the body
How can you get rid of this problem?
The potential treatments for eyelid area psoriasis are endless—however, some might be too harsh and might not be the best option for you, based on your current health status. For example: if you are undergoing chemotherapy, some oral medications that target the immune system could make you even more ill.
So, by using our Revitalizing Mist is a less harsh, more natural and non-toxic option for healthier skin. Also, consuming better, healthier foods, and taking essential vitamins like A, B complex, C, E, along with anti-candida supplements (caprylic acid gels) or inflammation-lowering supplements (quercetin and turmeric), also help your immune system.
Alternative treatments that help improve skin:
- Emu oil
- Vitamin E oil as topical
- Vitamin A topical
- A, B complex, C, D, E
- Caprylic acid, topical or gel capsule
Keep eyelid area clean, don’t rub, and follow directions with any treatments
You will want to address any eyelid development of psoriasis immediately because it can be an extreme irritant and could develop into worsening symptoms. Do not rub, scratch, and constantly wipe the area or other finger contact. Try to keep the area clean with warm soap and water. Pat the area dry. Follow treatment and directions with oral medications, creams, or using our HOCL revitalizing spray.
When you have psoriasis, you will want to remove any:
- Contact lenses
- Facial piercings
- Facial oils or heavy scented lotions or creams
- Make up
These items listed above can make psoriasis worse, causing more redness, irritation and could very well cause it to spread or bleed. Take note, and make sure your skin is free of those items, know the possible complications below. When you don't treat the patches of psoriasis promptly, they can worsen, especially eyelid areas. This could lead to other eye issues such as infections, inflammation, or both.
Studies have shown a connection between psoriasis and the development of cataracts. The eyeball becomes prone to getting other mild to severe conditions—dry eye and swollen eyes can be common when you have developed eyelid psoriasis and it’s out of control.
Other potential complications from psoriasis eyelid issues:
- Dry eye
- Uveitis (swollen eyeball)
- Eye infections
- Conjunctivitis (or pink eye)
- Cataracts (sometimes people with psoriasis already have or are prone to getting these)
- Blepharitis (swollen eyelid area)
What is hypochlorous acid (HOCL) and why do we use it in the revitalizing spray?
Kind of like hyaluronic acid—we already make hypochlorous acid in the body. This product is formulated when our white blood cells attack an infection or a foreign invader. So, when you get any infection, inflammation or anything your body doesn’t view as normal, your white blood cells produce the HOCL.
Because of its strength to fight infections, scientists developed and utilized a synthetic version of HOCL. It is used in skin care lines and cleaning products today. Essentially, the development of the synthetic version is created by using electrolysis. It is developed into a saltwater solution. It also has a long shelf life which is great for these varieties of skincare and other essential products.
The synthetic version of hypochlorous acid is a highly beneficial solution is beneficial because it can still rid of the bad while making skin healthier. It can ward off chronic skin conditions like psoriasis, which are even more irritating and problematic around eyelid areas.
HOCL solution is beneficial because it can:
- Help fight bacteria on the skin
- Repair skin damage and improve wound healing time
- It’s safe and gentle; perfect solution spray for sensitive skin
Incorporate hypochlorous acid into your skincare routine
The PurClarity Revitalizing Mist can be used daily or several times a day and be used anywhere on the body. You can use it in your morning, afternoon, or nightly routine. It isn't a mess to use as it goes on as a clear, mist spray, and has no strange odor.
Always be aware that other products on the market for skin conditions, including psoriasis may have scents added. This is why our product is a must have—it has been kept pure, and is safe and effective for your skincare and pesky psoriasis needs. The revitalizing spray can be liberally sprayed on the face. It can also help with other issues such as reducing acne outbreaks or eczema.
Are there dangers or side effects with our HOCL PurClarity Revitalizing Mist?
Our product is effective and safe as well as non-scented; anyone can use it no matter their skin type. The HOCL PurClarity Revitalizing Mist can be liberally sprayed on your face and over your eyelids several times a day—make sure your eyelids are firmly closed when spraying the product. If you are already prone to getting psoriasis on your face, such as the eyelids, you should know that HOCL is 100 times stronger than bleach.
As with any new skin care product, to be sure, you can spray it on a skin issue somewhere else on the body to test its power and to see how safe it is.
Consult specialty doctors about your eyelid psoriasis and other skin care needs
You’ll want to talk to a dermatologist and ophthalmologist (if you have an eye infection or other eye symptoms along with the eyelid psoriasis) on the best approaches for eyelid psoriasis issues if you have a difficult situation with your skin. The best treatment plan for you might be a multi-pronged approach. However, using a gentle mist spray might be all you need.
Consult with a specialist and have further testing done with an immunologist or gastroenterologist to ensure you don't have a serious GI condition (something other than simple IBS; sometimes it can be debilitating and cause significant problems) causing the skin issues. Patients often develop psoriasis from a general infection, and it could be a fleeting problem, not a long-term issue. But, to be safe and know what you're dealing with, it is best to do some further investigation but start with OTC products such as our HOCL PurClarity Revitalizing Mist.
