You could be having mild meibomitis which is nothing but inflammation of the glands present on the lid margins. This is a very common condition. Due to this, the tear film is defective and may lead to dryness. This may cause redness, dryness, itching and even burning in severe meibomitis(in mild disease, these symptoms may be absent). Warm compresses and frequent instillation of a preservative free lubricating eye drop like Refresh Tears helps a lot. An oral anti-biotoc course of Doxycycline for 2 weeks is very helpful (since you are likely to have mild meibomitis, it is not required).
I don't think the rash is due to thallasmia but it could be due to iron chelation therapy, if you are on it. It is seen in about 5% of cases. For mild to moderate skin rashes, defrasirox may be continued without dose adjustment, since the rash often resolves spontaneously. For more severe rashes, interruption of treatment may be necessary. You can discuss it with your doctor but first you need to confirm the diagnosis by seeing an ophthalmologist. Thanks.
