Sore red patch near eye


Hi all, I was hoping if someone might know what this might be.

I have had it for about a month, I have been to the doctors twice now first one said I had eczema and gave me a steroid cream, it made it less red but came back straight away on the two days off.

The other doctor said it is roseca and gave a cream that hasn't done anything apart from make my skin itch.

It is sore when rubbed and sensitive. I'm not a big make up wearer but have completely stopped for over a week as it is to sore to take off.

Diet hasn't changed or produces I use.

Any guidance would be appreciated. My skin on my face in general isn't great at the moment.

I have a similar patch it's been there for about seven years. Had a punch biopsy and dermatologist said it is sun damage

Hi thank you for this, I will ask if it could be sun damage when next at Dr.

On Friday I went and had my skin looked at under on of those lights that shows up sun damage. Nothing for that area only a little on my nose.

Was you patch painful?

Have you tried tea tree oil - don't get in your eye. As to diet, have you tried an anti-inflammatory diet?

Did you ever find out what it was? I have something that looks identical and is painful and sensitive.

I have the same thing. It’s very tender almost like burning sensation when touched. I can’t even sleep on that side.
