The eczema around the eyes

No cosmetics other than hypoallergenic moisturizing and greasing eye cream purchased in the pharmacy shall be used during the treatment. It is recommended to use glasses, if you are in dusty and dry environment.

Perioral dermatitis is the second most widespread diagnosis when eczema around the eyes appears. It occurs most often in women in their twenties with either grease or, on contrary, a very dry skin. It doesn’t however avoid men entirely. It is basically a reaction of the skin on an allergen. The source for such allergen can be in used cosmetics from creams to makeup, hair dyes, shampoos and also to a chlorinated water.
