Long story short, I had a bad allergic reaction to my eyelash extensions after about 3 months of having them (woke up with extremely red puffy eyes). I removed them immediately and was prescribed 5 days of prednisone as a result of contact dermatitis.
My eyes returned to normal after about 2 days of prednisone, however, after about a week, my eye swelling came back, my forehead was itchy and red, and around my eyes were flaking with skin. I was told by a doctor that the lashes gave me a chemical burn and she prescribed me more predisone. I went and saw a dermatologist as a second opinion and they told me stop any prednisone use and take off your acrylic nails as you are probably allergic to acrylate (so I removed my fake nails).
This was about a week ago now. My eyes seem to get better then get worse (cant pinpoint what is causing this). They have been fine the last few days, however, I woke up this morning with it being the worst it has been (attached photos from today). It seems to get better as the day progresses but my forehead again is extremely itchy (looks like I have a sunburn), my eyelids are swollen still, itchy, and I have perfect red circles around both eyes. What could be causing this?!?
