Not a good idea...: Methylprednisolone aceponate is a steroid cream. Steroids generally should not be used for infections because the steroid effect may actually "dull" or slow down the body's immune system. In some situations, steroid preparations may actually stimulate the infection to get worse. Please see your doctor right away for the infection near your eyes.
