You are right, this is an allergic reaction. The treatment for allergy is -
- to avoid the cause of allergy - any face cream, under eye cream, make up etc
- take oral anti-histaminic like cetrezine
- apply 1% hydrocortisone ointment locally
- keep the skin moist with frequent application of lotions
- wear dark glasses or goggles on going out to minimize contact with allergen.
All the above measures might reduce your symptoms to a large extent with minor reoccurances, as allergy can sometimes not be cured completely.
