What are the causes of red itchy bump around the eye?

Chalazion/hordeolum: Most often, this finding would be the result of a blocked and infected gland or hair follicle of the eyelid. Depending on the location, it could be called a chalazion or hordeolum (stye). Treatment with warm compresses will resolve many of these lesions. See an eye md if the bump is not resolved within a few days of using warm compresses, or anytime if it worsens. Some need to be drained with surg. ...Read more

Stop the cream.: First of all, betaderm (which contains betamethasone) is a strong steroid cream that should not be used on the face. Stop using it. Your pimply rash could be due to the cream itself. If it was there before you started applying betaderm, the most common causes are adult acne and rosacea, both easily treatable by a dermatologist, once he or she makes a precise diagnosis. ...Read more

Stye: If this occurred rather suddenly, it probably is a stye, which is a blocked oil gland of the eyelid. It can become secondarily infected and can spread to adjacent tissues leading to cellulitis. Most of these styes respond to very warm compresses 3-4 times/day for 10' followed by gentle massage with a washcloth containing a small amount of baby shampoo. After a week, the stye should nearly resolve ...Read more
