Eczema, often known as dermatitis, is characterized by red, dry, or scaly skin around the eyes. Family history, the environment, allergies, or foreign chemicals such as cosmetics or moisturizers can all contribute to dermatitis.
Eczema can be persistent in some cases, but it can also be treated. Home cures and prescription medications are among the options for treatment. If you have severe eczema near your eye, you should see a doctor.
