Have you tried cortisone cream? I had a problem with contact dermatitis around my eyes (eye lids, under eyes, corner of eyes) that caused dry, red, itchy, flaky skin for many weeks. I tried regular facial lotion to no avail. Only after trying cortisone (1%) cream, available OTC, did my problem go away. It only took 2-3 days and my [pretty] severe skin problem was completely gone.
You may have rubbed you eyes after touching something that your skin was allergic to, which I think is what happened with me. I rub my eyes a lot. I think when I was using WhiteStrips on my teeth I touched the strips with my fingertips and got hydrogen peroxide on them, and rubbed my eyes. That's all I can think of that caused my problem. Anyway, the cortisone cream did the trick for me...I just wish I had tried it earlier instead of suffering for a month.
