red sores under eyes

Last January I had noticed something under my left eye so I went to a walk in clinic. The doctor said that it was ring worm and he prescribed me a anti fungal cream. The cream seemed to work but a few days after using it the red sores would come back.

So I went to a dermatologist and said that it definitely was not ring worm. he did a skin test and said that it was a mite ( though he didn't say what kind of a mite it was). he then prescribed for me a cream that is used primarily for rosacea patients.

The cream did not help any at all.

So I called the dermatologist and he prescribed for me a premithrin (sp?) cream. I went back home and googled it and it is used to treat scabies. So now I'm thinking I have scabies.

That cream didn't really help all that much but it did help some. but I'm still not cured.

So I went see the dermatologist again and he told me that he didn't think I had scabies. ( I wish he would have told me that when he wrote the prescription over the phone!) and that I would just have to live with the sores and use the permithrin cream to keep it in check.

what a load of crap..

I don't think this dermatologist knows what the ***l hes talking about. he just randomly prescribed creams . Combined with the fact that he never told me what kind of mite they found on the skin sample I think he's full of it.

does anyone know what this might be?

  • I'm not positive what you have since you didn;t list many details about the sore and if it was painful (etc.). But if I were you I would go to either a new eye doctor or back to the clinic doctor! And yeah what a load of crap about the dermatologist! I have a similar thing (i dont know what it is) but get well soon!
