Impetigo and itchy eye lid skin:

Impetigo can cause itching of the eye lid and surrounding skin. It is a common and highly contagious skin infection that causes sores and blisters. This is more often found in children after close contact or after a minor injury. However it can occur in older people too. It’s not usually serious and often improves within a week of treatment or within a few weeks without treatment.

Impetigo how is it treated:

Impetigo can gets better without treatment in around two to three weeks. However, treatment is often recommended because it can reduce the length of the illness to around seven to 10 days and can lower the risk of the infection being spread to others. The main treatments prescribed are antibiotic creams or antibiotic tablets. These usually have to be used for around a week.
