Customer Question

Recently in the last month my eyes have developed a redness underneath the eyes. The sensitive skin under my eyes is itchy and looks severely wrinkled. Thought it could be cat allergies or a skin infection, but I tried everything..benadryl, hydrocortisone, etc. Now a co-worker is coming down with the same symptoms. Please help this is aging me like 10 years and I certainly don't want to spread this to any more co-workers.
