Very pale inside eyelids
Hi Doc,
I have noticed the colour inside my lower eyelids are very pale almost white. Why is this? I''ve heard if it is very red in colour one could be suffering from high blood pressure?

Hallo Liz
Pale eyelids may be due to iron anemia, so if you feel tired and weak you should maybe have a blood test done. Red eyelids are not an indication of high blood pressure but can be a sign of allergy or infection.
