See an eye doctor: This can represent an allergy, an infection or an inflammatory process. If the spot is on the eyelid it needs to be treated differently than if it is on the eye itself. In either case, you should have an eye doctor evaluate it so that the appropriate treatment can be started. ...Read more

I have a rash under my left eye possibly from a new eye drop for my glacoma. Am having a lens implant in 3 days can I proceed?

I have a rash under my left eye possibly from a new eye drop for my glacoma.  Am having a lens implant in 3 days  can I proceed?

Talk to your Eye MD: If you have started a new medication, a rash under the eye is indeed a common sign of allergy, either to the medication itself or a preservative. You don't want to go into a surgical procedure with an inflammed eye, so you probably will need to switch drops before the procedure, and possibly get checked to r/o infection. I would call the on-call doctor in the group about this. ...Read more

See dermatologist : From what u have written appears to be a non specific dermatitis. Best wld be to see a dermatologist and get a specific diagnosis. Alternately u can try 1% hydrocortisone cream ( over the counter) which will lessen the itching and may clear the small bumps. If it is does not help or gets worse u shd see the doctor. ...Read more

Seborrhea?: While this sounds like seborrheic dermatitis, no one can answer this without seeing it. If it isn't gone in two weeks, and a trial of over-the-counter Hydrocortisone fails, check with your family physician; no rush. I'm glad you are taking a proactive approach to your health. Good luck. ...Read more
