Secrets, coping

Does anyone have experience with psoriasis on your eyelids, or outside corners or your eye? It's just starting there for me and can really be painful. I have creams but I worry about them so close to my eye... any ideas?

Eyelids sorry to say for me were really sore , I use Vaseline around my eyes at night .

I had it on my eyelids at one time. There is a prescription steroid that can be used around the eyes.

I, too, deal with some around my eyes, and under my eyebrows. I use one of the weaker steroids like triamycinolone or a 2 1/2% hydrocortisone. Using something weak means I have to make sure I put it on 2 or 3 times a day until I get some clearing. Than I always make sure I use some of my Olive Oil that I also use regularly/daily/evening. Olive Oil has good anti-inflammatory properties.
