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

Try using artificial tears 4x/day in both eyes. You can also use the OTC allergy drop, 'Zatidor' - this is 2x/day. ...Read more

Currently using betaderm cream, I have itchy red skin with small white bumps around nose, mouth, & eyes. Occurs randomly, what  is this issue called?

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

I have what I think is a stye on left  lower lid, there is a bump on the outside corner but eye itchy and pull down lid it's real red and some spots?

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

Angular blepharitis : A picture would be very helpful, and length of time. Sudden onset and within the last 5 days would be more concerning. Redness usually indicates inflammation, and in that region probably caused by a low grade, smouldering kind of reaction to a bacteria that normally lives in harmony on our skin. The treatment would be a mild topical antibiotic - steroid combination ...Read more
