Customer Question

I have a burning sensation on the skin around my eyes. My skin will look red and also drys up at times. I have put oil around it which at times helps with the dryness and also hydro-cortisone. Both those things though only provide mild short term relief.
I also have the same thing happening on the middle of both my arms opposite my elbows.
I'm not sure what is causing this I thought maybe it was the consumption of milk which I have ceased but my symptoms have only worsened since,
Any idea what I am looking at and what options for treatment might be available to me?
