it could be bad rosacea
your doctors should try low dose antibiotics and see if it helps
you should get a skin biopsy to find out more information about what is causing the itchy burning sores.
it could be a MRSA skin infection in rare cases.
you would need a skin culture to check for rare infections.
would you like to upload a photo of the red blotches around your eyes?
