    This area of skin is quite tricky to treat however there are some things that can work.
    Using bottled water only to wash the face can be beneficial in clearing up eczema around the eyes.
    Also, use of a very mild cortisone cream can work - however care must be taken not to get any into the eyes - same goes for moisturiser.
    Many people also forget about their facial eczema when washing their hair - most conventional hair products can flare up eczema in this area - it is best to use specially developed hypoallergenic hair products.
