I am sorry to hear about your problem with the reddened skin around your eyes. I have had blepharitis which makes the eyelids very red (and in my case produced recurring styes as well) and I remember well how tough it was to deal with red eyes. Sometimes, skin problems of that sort can be helped with a course of tetracycline. Has anyone suggested that? Also, have you seen an ophthalmologist or just dermatologists?
