it looks like you have some outbreak of acne on your forehead and your left cheek.

in some parts of the country, there is some early warm weather which can cause allergy symptoms and red eyes and itchy eyes and redness around the eyes.

Maybe, like I said I have had red blotchy marks around my eyes for a couple years now, the picture does not show it well. It is most evident on my left eye between my eye brow and eyelid. It becomes very red and has dry skin as well. It appears under my eye as well. It has been persistent for nearly two years. I have tried various OTC creams, but it has never cleared. It is also present on right eye in the same areas
Expert:  Dr. David replied 10 months ago.

it could be mild local eczema reactive skin

have you tried 1% hydrocortisone steroid cream on the area

it could be a mild skin fungal infection

have you tried 1% clotrimazole antifungal cream? antifungal creams need to be used for 4-6 weeks to work.

I have tried a hydrocortisone cream, it seemed to lighten up bit was still persistent. Can I get clotrimazole OTC? I will try that.
