There's a limit to what you can put on your eyelids, as they are very delicate, when I have had allergic itchy reactions, I have used health food store Calendula gel & very cold black iced tea also works to relieve swelling.

Use ice in a washcloth to help take down swelling and itch. Take some Benadryl to help also.

When the children were very young, for mosquito bites etc, I was told to dissolve an aspirin (make a paste) in a little water and dab it on the affected area. No more itching, and the swelling was gone in a few hours. Especially when young children and babies skins are so sensitive, this was told to me by a mothercraft nurse so I gave it a try, so glad I did. Kay from Oz

I used to get mosquito bites on my eye lids all the time.it really sucks because my eye would swell up and I would be embarrassed to go to school. My mom used to use a wash cloth with boiling water , and press it against my eye for minutes at a time. This worked, but I do have to admit it didn't work immediately. The process took time. The swelling didn't completely go down until after a few days.

I was told by my pharmacist no creams or ointments on eyelids. One rub the the wrong way and the ointment can go directly into your eye possibly blinding you. Use Aloe Vera Gel it dries up and won't sting.

I just got a bug bite on my eyelid; what do I do?

By Jake from TX


Treating a Bug Bite on Your Eye Lid

I did a search for you and a doctor told someone to do this:
Apply Benadryl cream or generic with cortizone in it. Use ice, put in a facecloth and hold for awhile to relieve swelling. (07/15/2010)
