I have for 1month now had a really dry/red sore patch under my right eye, I have stopped using all items on my face except aqueous cream to wash & moisturise but it still continues, red & sore. I am putting Eucerin cream & the aqueous cream on 10 times a day to help treat the red dryness.
I am concerned that you may be putting cream on your eye so much that you are worsening the condition. 10 times a day for Eucerin sounds a bit much. There are so many things that can cause skin problems, and the skin around your eyes is very delicate, so it doesn't take much to irritate it.
For that reason, I would encourage you to make an appointment with your doctor. If you don't feel as though your doctor is taking you seriously, you do have the right to a second opinion. You might ask for a referral with a dermatologist (skin care specialist), since this is a recurrent problem.
It will be much easier for someone who has examined you and seen firsthand what's going on to advise you. I wish I could be more helpful, but this sounds like a situation that merits an in-person examination by a health professional.

OMG, I have the exact same condition under BOTH eyes for the last four months! Its dry, scaly and very deep red under both eyes...I've been to my primary doctor twice and a dermtologist twice, with no help. I was given tons of atopical, prescription strength and over the counter medicinal lotions and nothing has helped. Hot and cold water compresses don't help either...This condition started at the end of Feb and I live in the midwest so it was very cold and not due to seasonal allergies, but now that my seasonal allergies are kicking in, they look worse. It looks like Ive been crying, and drinking with no sleep for days! If anyone has experienced anything like this and help please post your answers!!!
