    I have have recurring red patches of skin (sometimes dry, sometimes not) under my eyes and on the sides of my nose. They flare up then cool down but never fully go away. I'm wondering what they could be and how to treat them. I have been to a derm about them but he didnt know what they were and the creams he gave me didnt help. attached is a picture.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    No one here is qualified to diagnose (apologies to any doctor members!) and if a dermatologist wasn't able to, you may need to seek a second opinion to find a solution.

    In the meantime, you could investigate natural therapies. You could start with homeopathy.

    Not diagnosing but I would check things like your pillow, what it is washed in, go for non-bio and a pure conditioner and check the fabric, go for soft cotton. Also have a look at 'malar rash' .Then you can see where you are.
