I have red skin discoloration in outer corners of eyes. Also, purplish-red near tear ducts (skin). Why? From sinus infection? What can I do for it?
Possible infection: Redness of the skin around the eyes is typically from things like blepharitis, a type of inflammation of the eyelids, or from allergies.
