Fungal skin infection under eye?

I have a rough, flaky patch of skin under my left eye that causes some swelling when it is bad. It always looks dry but I know it isn't because my right eye is fine and no other parts of my undereye area is like this. When I put concealer on it, it flakes. I've tried some Cortisone and that seems to help the swelling a little. Has anyone had this? I'm wondering if it is some kind of fungal infection and if so is it something I can treat OTC?

Re: Fungal skin infection under eye?

I was reading about tea Tree Oil. Would it be safe to use under the eye?
