In brief: Avoidance
When applying acne cream, avoid applying near/around the eyes, and applying sparingly.
Most acne creams only require a pea-sized amount of product for a face application, which is applied by dabbing (on cheeks, chin, forehead, & nose) then rubbing in. If your symptoms occur or worsen despite proper application, stop using the product & see your physician as you may be having an allergic reaction.

In brief: Avoid the cream
Please do not use it around the eye, it is causing you eye allergy.
